Pedagogy in the Post-racial, Post-feminist American Society

This presentation aims to foster a conversation among SPACE participants regarding issues related to teaching university students about racial and gender inequality. In an effort to create inclusive classrooms, university instructors must introduce dynamics of the resiliency of racism and sexism; yet, ofentimes, students remain steadfast in their belief that these injustices are elements of past social relations and no longer applicable to their more enlightened generation. This conversation will posit more questions than answers during this interactive session to highlight stratgies for competently engaging with these topics in the academy.
