Women's and Gender Studies Lunchtime Talks
"Confronting Privilege in the Classroom"
What: When confronted with ideas of privilege, people can become agitated, angry, or disconnected. Unfortunately, instead of seeing this type of discussion as a way to understand systemic privilege and how it functions, people too often think they are being attacked or told they did not earn their accomplishments. Having the right tools to turn contentious moments into teachable opportunities empowers educators to foster growth and create change. This roundtable discussion will engage students and lecturers to discuss approaches and best practices when issues of privilege arise in the classroom. This discussion will give participants the tools and strategies to confront privilege in many different contexts.
