January 29, 2016

12-1 pm

** Free and open to the Stanford community ~ Please share widely **

Join EAST House for an important discussion of the criminalization of black girls in schools with author and social justice scholar, Dr. Monique W. Morris.

Friday, January 29, 2016 * 12-1PM @ EAST House

Lunch available at 11:45AM

RSVP here

Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools is a discussion about the experiences of Black girls across the country whose intricate lives are misunderstood, highly judged–by teachers, administrators, and the justice system–and degraded by the very institutions charged with helping them flourish. This book shows how, despite obstacles, stigmas, stereotypes, and despair, Black girls still find ways to breathe remarkable dignity into their lives in classrooms, juvenile facilities, and beyond.

** Generously funded by Residential Education and the Riddell Fund with support from the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies **

#EdResearch4SpringValley Bibliography https://feminist.stanford.edu/edresearch4springvalley-bibliography/ https://feminist.stanford.edu/edresearch4springvalley-bibliography/#comments Fri, 15 Jan 2016 19:14:49 +0000 https://feminist.stanford.edu/?p=3371 We are pleased to release an annotated reading list on authority and the marginalization of youth in schools and education.

In October 2015, following a violent incident against a young female student at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina, Prudence Carter, Jacks Family Professor of Education and Faculty Director of the John W. Gardner Center for Youth and Their Communities at Stanford University, put out a call to educational researchers and other social scientists “to make informative research more widely known to educators, parents, students, activists, community-based organizations and many others, as they continue to eradicate disparate treatment in discipline, suspensions, and expulsions in schools.”

We are pleased to release the resulting collective effort of many around the nation–an annotated reading list on authority and the marginalization of youth in schools and education–and encourage you to share it broadly.

Workshop on Transpedagogy and Engaging Today’s Learners with Dr. Susan Stryker https://feminist.stanford.edu/workshop-on-transpedagogy-and-engaging-todays-learners-with-dr-susan-stryker/ https://feminist.stanford.edu/workshop-on-transpedagogy-and-engaging-todays-learners-with-dr-susan-stryker/#comments Mon, 04 Jan 2016 21:27:48 +0000 https://feminist.stanford.edu/?p=3331 Transpedagogy Workshop with Susan Stryker

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

 To build on the discussions FGSS started around transpedagogy last quarter, Dr. Stryker will talk about the work she has done at the University of Arizona to implement a Transgender Studies program, including the creation of four tenure-track lines and developing a trans studies curriculum. She will focus on pedagogical tips, reaching today’s learners, and engaging with trans topics in the classroom. This is a rare opportunity to learn from a leader in the field and ask any questions you may have about addressing trans students, engaging students in academics on trans topics, etc.

Susan Stryker is Associate Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies, as well as Director of the Institute for LGBT Studies; she also holds a courtesy appointment as Associate Professor in the Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences.  She is the author of many articles and several books on transgender and queer topics, most recently Transgender History (Seal Press 2008). She won a Lambda Literary Award for the anthology The Transgender Studies Reader (Routledge 2006), and an Emmy Award for the documentary film Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria (Frameline/ITVS 2005).

This discussion with Dr. Susan Stryker will take place over wine and snacks in the Terrace Room of Margaret Jacks Hall, building 460 on Wednesday, Jan. 6th, 5-6:30pm

Please RSVP hereLink to RSVP

This session is generously sponsored by the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning’s Year of Learning and the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
