  • LAI 620SEM Intersectionality and Education

    Intersectionality, Inequality, and Education is an introduction to a subfield of education research. The first goal of the course is to provide you with an understanding of the subfield's key concepts: intersectionality, socio-cultural production and practice, identity, difference, positionality, power, (in)equality, and equity. We will foreground gender (and sexuality, feminisms, masculinities, femininities) and attend to intersections with multiple dimensions of inequality including but not limited to race, ethnicity, indigeneity, religious identity, citizenship, able-ism, refugee, migrant. The second goal of the course is to examine how the key concepts can be used to analyze curriculum, instruction, learning, and education policy. A last goal of the course is to apply this knowledge as a student, an educator, counselor, librarian, activist, administrator, parent, or education researcher. Questions we will ponder throughout the semester are: What is intersectionality? What does it have to do with education? What do theories and methodologies of intersectionality reveal to us about teaching, learning, assessment, knowledge/curriculum, school administration, or policy? How might we use this knowledge to transform education and society?
