Teaching and scholarship require professors to be informed, sensitive to, and readily engaged with various iterations of social difference. A keen awareness of the ways gender, sex, race, ethnicity, native language skill, among other characteristics influence both course subject matter and the students in the course is critical to progressive, thoughtful pedagogy. In addition to recognizing the way students’ identities function in the classroom, we also seek methods to decolonize the very archives and bodies of knowledge we assign and encourage students to unpack. Through intersectional approaches to scholarship and pedagogy, we will discuss techniques that connect the lived experience of social difference with textual/curriculum based examples and assignments.
