Stories on Race in the Classroom

Emmanuel Pratt, Radical [Re]Constructions, 2017

Which pedagogical strategies can be used to address race in the classroom? What are the dynamics that arise when considering race alongside ‘traditional’ academic roles (student, teacher, student-teacher)?

Join the Race and Pedagogy Working Group at the Smart Museum of Art for an evening of stories on race in the classroom. Inspired by 2017–2018 Interpreter in Residence Emmanuel Pratt’s methods of regenerative placemaking, this event will encourage participants to think through the effects of the physical space of the classroom on group dynamics. By including various backgrounds and perspectives from people at different points in their academic trajectories, the aim of the panel is to search for both common anxieties and successful strategies shared by students and teachers, bearing in mind the development of a more holistic anti-racist pedagogy.
