Co-Creating Spaces for Relationships, Resilience, and Resistance: Exploring Possibilities for Social Justice
This year, we will explore how we create spaces that honor and facilitate the creation of relationships, resilience, and resistance toward the goal of social justice. We invite you to join with fellow colleagues and inspirational guest presenters as we celebrate, question, problematize, and re-imagine the spaces we inhabit, influence, and that affect us.
Our keynote speakers are Dr. Michelle Fine, City University of New York, and Dr. Antwi Akom, San Francisco State University. Dr. Fine’s scholarship focuses on social justice, perceptions of injustice and the effects of inequities on communities and individuals. Dr. Akom studies culturally and community responsive STEM pedagogy including GIS mapping and technological innovation, food security/justice, community driven sustainability development and youth participatory action research. Between the keynote presentations there will be opportunities for graduate students to present papers and posters describing their own work.
