Democracy Conversations welcomes Dr. Pedro García-Caro

Banned speech, censored curriculum, and disinformation about DEI and critical race theory are a few of the recent challenges to academic freedom posed by anti-democratic forces in legislatures and education boards. The Democracy Conversation series welcomes Professor Pedro García-Caro from the University of Oregon's Department of Romance Languages and School of Global Studies for a presentation called “There’s No Planet B: Adventures in Academic Freedom in the Age of Trump." The session will explore the current climate of anti-democratic rhetoric and how challenges to discourse and course content impact academic freedom for faculty and students. 

Join us on Tuesday, March 5 from 3 - 4 PM — Library Room 229 or on Zoom (the session will not be recorded). 

Academic Colloquia: Strategies for Social Justice in Syllabusing: (Re)Defining Success in the Classroom with Edrees Nawabi, faculty in Writing & Literature and co-chair of Diversity Council. 

Dr. Nawabi will offer both theories and practices to develop conscious rhetorical sovereignty in the classroom. Conscious rhetorical sovereignty means treating students with agency over their success. In other words, instead of simply assimilating into academic discourse, students are given agency in negotiating with a keen awareness for the ways one's identity shifts and evolves in new rhetorical situations. This liberatory pedagogy will help instructors of all fields practice values deeply ingrained in feminist, anti-racist, Ojibwe/Dakota, and disability rhetorics. Attendees can expect to take on new philosophies and practices for their classrooms, but more importantly, this is the first step in gearing up towards our Syllabus Audits in 2024-2025.
