Teaching about social justice, difference, and power brings many challenges and opportunities. Hear from accomplished U-M instructors about specific approaches they have used to engage a range of students in thinking critically about the particular topic of social privilege. The session is designed to help participants develop strategies to successfully address challenges related to teaching about privilege: e.g., potential student resistance to considering their own positions of privilege, tension in the classroom when topics of lived privilege on campus arise, and negotiation of one's identities as a teacher when teaching such topics. The session includes plenty of time for Q&A with faculty panelists:
Stephen Berrey, American Culture and History
Alisse Portnoy, English
Ruby Tapia, Women's Studies and English
Alford Young, Sociology and Afroamerican & African Studies
