IA TLC - Beyond the Stats: Representation, Counter-Narratives, and Education as an Organizing/Survival Strategy
Imagining America Teaching + Learning Circle (IA TLC) Webinar Series
Imagining America (IA) invites community cultural producers, faculty, staff, and students from across the national IA network to join our online Teaching and Learning Circle (TLC) webinar. IA TLC is an online learning community that builds conversations about the opportunities, joys, and challenges of designing and delivering community and creatively engaged courses and projects.
This TLC webinar features Beyond the Stats (BTS), a collective of formerly incarcerated and system impacted students enrolled at UC Davis. Invited guest facilitators and BTS co-founders Tina Allen-Curiel and Daniel Mendoza will discuss their pedagogical approach to and syllabus for "Education as Freedom AKA Amerikkka This is How You Made Me," as well as their organizing and representation strategy for BTS as a student organization of a marginalized and often sensationalized community. This seminar is offered by the Chicana/o Studies department at UC Davis and led by BTS.
BTS is a collective of formerly incarcerated and system impacted students enrolled at UC Davis. We have come together to find effective ways to support each other in non-judgmental, holistic, and constructive ways. It is our belief that our life experience provides insights into topics discussed in the classroom, and that our resilience benefits not only us, but the communities we serve.
Registration is now open for IA members and individuals interested in joining the IA network. If you are a member campus and did not receive the link to register or have questions regarding the TLC, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
