Dangerous Classrooms: Creating Safe Spaces for Difficult Discussions Exploring Race, Class, Gender, Identity, Oppression and Liberation
Mike Niman will discuss how his work leading intercommunity discussions confronting issues such as systemic racism and its role in our shared experiences as Americans and his doctoral fieldwork studying acephalous consensus councils informs his pedagogy at Buffalo State where his work addressing these issues has earned him a SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. He’ll discuss his teaching strategies, how discomfort can lead to community building in the classroom, and how institutions can support such pedagogy.
