This 3-hour interactive workshop is an opportunity for educators and/or community members to explore whiteness and its relationship to language, privilege, and power. Specifically, the workshop will foreground intersections of race and ask participants to ponder how language, power, and privilege have informed their lived experiences, interactions, and practices. Participants will also be asked to consider how language, power, and privilege inform how we see ourselves and others and the implications of such on teaching and learning. It is important to note that this workshop will be part of an annual Summer Institute 3 part series on Languaging Power, Privilege, and Whiteness that will be hosted by The Center for Video Ethnography and Discourse Analysis (CVEDA) in the Department of Teaching and Learning. Participants are not required to participate in the series annually but should consider because session II will be designed with participants from session I and their feedback in mind.
Part II (Summer 22) Learning, Unlearning & Relearning:Exploring Power, Privilege, and Whiteness. This session will ask participants to identify potential blindspots around whiteness, privilege, language, and power as well as consider the consequences.
Part III (Summer 23) will ask participants to use the lens and knowledge that they have learned to identify specific challenges that they are navigating in their practice or teaching and learning context and begin to develop strategies, practices, and/or programs that they can implement to facilitate more just, equitable, and inclusive teaching and learning context
Part IV: Prepare, Showcase, and Share. This will provide participants an opportunity to prepare, showcase and share what they have learned with peers.
By the end of Part I (Summer 2021): Clearing the Way: Exploring Power, Privilege, and Whiteness, participants will be able to:
