Fall PD Conference and AGM
Open to all TESL Ontario Members (Only TESL Ottawa member can vote at the AGM).
When: Saturday, November 28, 2020 9:00 am - 11:15 am
Racism is the key challenge of our times, shaping the responses to all the other challenges. The structure of racism shapes how people engage with antiracism education. By taking this structure into account, a pedagogy connection can overcome growing polarization and the resurgence of white supremacist movements. This pedagogy makes visible human beings' complex material, symbolic and embodied interconnections and help to ensure that the space for racisms to develop does not develop in the first place.
Event Format: Online - Tutela
About the Presenter: Timothy J. Stanley is Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Education and the Institute of Indigenous Studies and Research of the University of Ottawa. With over forty years of experience in antiracism education, he researches the links between contemporary racisms, people's lived histories and forms of historical memory.
