S238 "The Times They Are A-Changin’: The Pedagogy of Protest"
Jenny Molberg, Kyle Dargan , D. Gilson, F. Douglas Brown, Jessica Hindman
This panel considers writing as an instrument for political protest and social dissent. Panelists will explore theoretical reasons for using the literature and music of protest in the classroom, in addition to delivering practical, portable pedagogy that encourages well-researched and considerate expressions of dissent. This panel recognizes the personal as a form of social and political consciousness, invoking Adrienne Rich when she writes, “We must use what we have to invent what we desire.”
