GSSW hosts 2nd biennial Pedagogy of Privilege conference

On August 15th & 16th, 2011, the Graduate School of Social Work will host the 2nd biennial Pedagogy of Privilege conference at Craig Hall on the University of Denver campus. Keynote speakers include Julia Serano (University of California, Berkeley) who will be delivering a talk, “Privilege, Double Standards, and Invalidations” during which she will use her experiences as a transgender woman to deconstruct resistance to acknowledging and challenging cisgender privilege. Victor Lewis (Center for Diversity Leadership) is a sought after speaker and workshop leader, most well-known for his role in the explosive documentary “Color of Fear.”  Finally, Kevin Kumashiro (University of Illinois, Chicago and The Center for Anti-Oppressive Educaiton) will be presenting “Three Lenses for Intersectional Pedagogy” where he will problematize the partial nature of privilege and its role in anti-oppressive educational work.
