LC Sess 2: Citational Practice as Critical Feminist Pedagogy (Grads)
February 25 @ 1:10 pm - 2:30 pm
CTLgrads Learning Community (for graduate students): Citational Practice as Critical Feminist Pedagogy, Session 2
Whom do we cite, and why? What kinds of ‘stories’ do we tell our students through our syllabi, footnotes, and bibliographies? In this Learning Community, we will explore how to teach and model citational practice in ways that empower our students to question and challenge dominant structures of knowledge, intellectual genealogies, and academic narratives. In doing so, we will also think collectively about citation as an ethical and political practice: how can we mobilize citational practice to interrogate and dismantle racist, misogynist, or otherwise harmful scholarship? How can we use it meaningfully to legitimize overlooked or non-traditional sources and empower the most vulnerable or excluded voices in our fields?
In the first session of this Learning Community, participants will be introduced to critical feminist pedagogy as a framework for grappling with the political and ethical implications of academic citation, both generally speaking and in participants’ home departments and disciplines. In the second session, participants will develop and workshop practical strategies for enacting a critical-feminist approach to citational practice in their own classrooms and learning materials. This Learning Community is designed and facilitated by Cat Lambert and Diana Newby, Senior Lead Teaching Fellows at the Center for Teaching and Learning.
This is the second session of a two-part Learning Community; Session 1 will convene Thursday, February 18th, 1:10-2:25pm. Attendance at both sessions is strongly encouraged. As a complement to these sessions, participants will be asked to complete self-guided, asynchronous materials online prior to each session. Additional information will be shared with registrants at least 2 weeks in advance of the session.
This session counts as a pedagogy workshop for the Teaching Development Program (TDP).
