Although this event is closed to the public, I thought my Cup of Diversity family would like to know about it. I am honored to present a workshop to Princeton’s Center for Language Study on antiracism in world languages. James Rankin, Senior Lecturer of German and Director of the Princeton Center for Language Study wrote me the following, “As part of a planned speaker series on “Social Justice in the Language Classroom” for the Spring 2021 term, we would very much like to engage you as our final speaker. You’ve come highly recommended by several colleagues.”
Title: The Antiracist World Language Classroom
Date: April 13 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Description: This past year has pivoted the nation into an unprecedented year of social justice, social change and a call to action. As the world responds to a global pandemic, racial tensions, and violence, how can the language classroom serve as a space for positive social change? This workshop will encourage and challenge educators to engage current events in meaningful ways. Although world language classrooms are now focusing on social justice, we continue to lack attention to race, racism, and antiracism. This workshop fills that gap.
Presenter: Dr. Krishauna Hines-Gaither (Guilford College)
I am humbled and honored by this invitation. I look forward to sharing with my Princeton University colleagues.
