2021 Fall Forum: Pedagogies of Reparation and Rebuilding
Friday, September 24, 2021
A Collaboration with Pratt Center for Teaching and Learning and Project Third (P3): Decolonial Art Pedagogies
This joint event between the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Project Third (P3): Decolonial Art Pedagogies will focus on presenting several ongoing collaborative initiatives—currently underway within Pratt — concerned with implementing and developing pedagogies of reparation and rebuilding. The Forum will gather members of the Pratt community for a day of discussion aimed at expanding notions of education and equity, from classroom dynamics to systems of governance and administration; from archiving histories, to BIPOC and queer-driven projects of radical inclusion and participation. Presenters will share ideas and practices for promoting equitable learning opportunities through decolonial approaches to an inclusive curriculum and pedagogy.
Call for Proposals
Raising critical questions about how to respond to the myriad crises which were laid bare—once again—by the COVID19 pandemic and their effects within Pratt, the Forum looks for sessions that present different projects that consider repairing or rebuilding learning environments, institutional structures and social politics through the lenses of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender, and disability.
In an effort to deemphasize traditional conference presentations, we encourage collective endeavors to apply to this call for participants. For this Forum, ‘collective’ could mean collaborations among faculty, within a department, across departments, between staff, faculty, and students, or engagements beyond Pratt.
The Forum will be held all day on Friday, September 24, 2021. If interested in sharing your work at the Forum, please complete the following proposal form by May 30, 2021 and we’ll be in touch in mid-June with next steps.
