Workshop: "Doing Feminist Pedagogy in Contemporary Universities: Old Dilemmas and New Challenges"

- Export as iCalendar
Location: LIB1 - Library Building

This workshop will bring staff and students together to reflect on how we might rethink and redo feminist pedagogy in the present, in light of old dilemmas and new challenges, including the working/studying conditions of the neoliberal university, changing student activist cultures, an epidemic of mental health issues among staff and students, or calls for a more intersectional, liberated curriculum.

It features the following speakers (in alphabetical order):

Janine Francois (University of Bedfordshire): Moving from Safe Spaces to Brave Spaces: How ‘Intersectionality’ can Facilitate Difficult Conversation within Teaching and Learning

Radhika Govinda (University of Edinburgh): 'Mirror Mirror on the Wall..." The Promise and Perils of Decolonising Feminist Classrooms

Awino Okech (SOAS): Reflections on Inclusive Pedagogy

Nicola Rivers (University of Gloucestershire): Resisting Resilience: The Role of Vulnerability in the Neoliberal Academy

This event is free and open to all, including staff, students (of all levels) and visitors from outside the University of Warwick.

All participants must book in advance. You can book here.

You are welcome to drop in throughout the afternoon, and attend only part of the event.
