Race & Pedagogy National Conference 2018

Every four years, the University of Puget Sound and the Race & Pedagogy Institute welcome more than 2,000 local, regional, national, and international participants to engage issues of race and to discuss the impact of race on education. Each conference builds on the success of the last and contributes

new perspectives to the conversation. Join us, September 27 - 29, 2018, to explore the theme Radically Re-Imagining the Project of Justice: Narratives of Rupture, Resilience, and Liberation. Major sub-themes are: Rupturing the Logics of Domination: Urgencies in the Project of Justice; Undoing Miseducation: Reclaiming and Rewriting Narratives of Liberation; and Radical Transformations: New Publics, New Social Contracts.

The Conference will include Keynote, Spotlight, and Concurrent sessions. Conversation Spaces will be built into the program to multiply opportunities for more informal interactions among attendees around selected topics drawn from the formal sessions. As part of the Institute’s commitment to understanding the arts as public pedagogy, the fine and performing arts will speak, in campus and community spaces, to the trauma and costly yields of entering the archives of painful histories of dehumanization and internment; to the similarly and differently turbulent and violent crossings through which migrations, genocide and enslavement have been wrought; to Tacoma’s own struggles for justice over the course of many years. The Conference will also feature a Youth Summit for middle and high school students built on the Institute’s engagement with Washington State public schools. In addition, a conference strand designed by PreK-12 educators will focus on Unlearning Racism and wrestling with issues of representation, curriculum, and pedagogy in public schools and teacher preparation.

Clock hours and professional development credits will be available for local statewide educators. Conference participants will have access to a digital program platform that will serve as a guide for choosing and moving through the Conference program to craft a rich educational experience and for making connections with other attendees.
