Decolonizing Research, Humanizing Methods

Friday, September 18, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Winn offers a workshop on equity-oriented, justice-seeking research in the humanities, focusing on listening, storytelling, and acting with and through communities.

Maisha T. Winn is Professor, Chancellor’s Leadership Professor, and Co-Director of the Transformative Justice in Education Center (TJE) at UC Davis. Winn’s research examines the intersectionality of language, literacy, and justice with attention to how to prepare teachers to “teach freedom” in both spaces of confinement and across the humanities. She considers the ways in which restorative justice practices have the potential to change languages, literacies, and social relations across our schools, institutions, and communities. Winn will draw from two of her books—Justice on Both sides: Transforming Education Through Restorative Justice and Restorative Justice in the English Language Arts Classroom—as bases for discussion with TJE Center collaborators and other panelists during her residency.

Space is limited. CART open captioning services will be provided. Visit the Humanities Center for more information and to register.
