Teaching While Marginalized: What Our Bodies Teach Us About Critical Pedagogy

In this interactive workshop, Z Nicolazzo will discuss the always already embodied nature of critical pedagogy for people with marginalized identities. She will engage participants in self-reflection and group-based activities to explore what it means to “show up” with marginalized identities in classroom spaces, how we are met with student resistance, and the possibilities for meeting such resistance to navigate the academy.
