Model for Anti-Racist Pedagogy

Over the course of 2021, I worked on an evolving list of core tenets for anti-racist pedagogy. We often use this phrase without any agreement or even reflection on what we really mean. How is this pedagogy overlapping yet distinct from inclusive teaching practices? As with all things in social justice movements, I will continue to improve on and expand these ideas.  Meanwhile, you can access your ARP model today!

Podcast Episodes on Intersectional Pedagogy

Dr. Tina Pippin, Professor at Agnes Scott College, hosts the Nothing Never Happens podcast. 

Part 1 (32 min): We discussed the definition of intersectionality, how we came to this theory, how we apply this approach in the classroom, and student learning outcomes.  

Part 2 (35 minutes): we talk about student and institutional resistance and challenges, along with concrete curricular and teaching suggestions for a culturally relevant pedagogy.

Intersectionality Student Project

The Intersections Public Education Project was developed as a faculty-student collaboration to emphasize intersectionality theory as applied to real world social issues such as racism, privilege, marginalization of LGBT individuals, sexism, and more. This assignment requires students to create and carry out a public education project that raises awareness of an intersectional social issue or teaches about the concept of intersectionality and the matrix of oppression and privilege.

Student Project Example

documentary– explored how images of race and gender interact in popular films to present stereotypes of Asian women and men.

"It was extremely exciting and motivating! I will never forget the lesson I learned not to be afraid to exhibit my work, and I will always remember feeling that I can help make a difference in education. What a lesson in self-efficacy this class brought to my life!"

Infusing Intersectionality: Psychology of Women Course

The resources below provide instructors with teaching tools for infusing intersectionality into a Psychology of Women course. In fact, the readings, videos, current events, could be used in a wide-range of courses with the goal of developing an intersectional focus. I developed these various resources when teaching an online undergraduate course using a 10-module structure. However, all of the materials could also be used in face-to-face courses.

The details related to this entire course and the use of the materials below can be found in the Case and Rios (2017) chapter within Intersectional Pedagogy: Complicating Identity and Social Justice.

Infusing Intersectionality & Social Issues: Social Psychology Course

The content below provides educators with ideas for incorporating current social issues and  social justice into a Social Psychology course. 

In this course, students and I apply social psychology research, theory, and concepts to a variety of social issues such as in-groups/out-groups, prejudice & discrimination,  social movements, social policy, ally behavior to support social change, experiences of marginalization, privilege, intersections of identity, and social forces and barriers within social institutions.
