Doing the Work & Minding the Labor: Reflections on Centering Activism, Community & Love in Literacy Teaching & Research with Dr. Marcelle Haddix
April 17 @ 5:15 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Dr. Marcelle Haddix (Syracuse University, Dean’s Associate Professor, co – Director of the Leader Center for Social Justice, chair of the Department Reading & Language Arts) will share reflections on her work in literacy teaching and teacher education that centers her passions and commitments toward activism, community, and love. The presentation will focus on three areas of her work: writing projects with urban youth writers; Black womanist leadership and administration in teacher education; and health and wellness movements within communities of color. This reflective and reflexive talk will emphasize the ways activism, community, and love not only inform the work but ground her identity and praxis as a literacy scholar.
This event is free and open to the public.
