Imagining America (artists and scholars in public life, https://imaginingamerica.org) is launching a new initiative, an online “teaching and learning circle.” The first program of this initiative is a webinar, offered on March 13th at 1pm EST.
”Our first webinar will feature critical dialogue and creative group work with Kush Patel (2016-2018 IA PAGE Co-Director) and Mallika Bose's (Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at Penn State) "Organizing Against Violence" project. The “Organizing Against Violence” pedagogy project was initiated at the 2018 IA National Gathering in Chicago, IL. The aim of Patel and Bose’s project is to create a network of critical pedagogues, engage in collective writing, and co-create a toolkit for distribution through Imagining America and related media. In the upcoming webinar, participants will reflect on their teaching practice and its relationship to the interconnected violence of colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy within affiliated institutions and communities. The webinar will involve live group writing, where participants will draft brief position statements to unpack their own institutional biographies and approaches to teaching, learning, and community engaged practice.”
Registration is now open to IA members and individuals interested in joining the IA network. For more information please contact Erika Prasad, Associate Director of Membership and Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
