Presentation & Discussion: “Niceness” and Inequality in Teaching and Learning (Jan. 13, 1–2 p.m.)

Join Christin DePouw (Associate Professor, Education & 2021-22 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Consultant) for a presentation and guided conversation on Jan. 13 from 1–2 p.m., where we continue prior discussions of humanizing pedagogies and white emotionality with a focus on “Niceness” in education. We will unpack “Niceness” and explore the difference between performative caring and justice-oriented, humanizing action. We will also analyze the power dynamics connected to performative Niceness and how this relates to racial inequality.
