In person and remotely on Friday, April 28th and remotely on Saturday, April 29th, 2023
The Excellence in Pedagogy and Innovative Classrooms (EPIC) Program, an initiative from the UCLA Division of Humanities, is pleased to host the upcoming conference “Reimagined Critical Pedagogy: Resistance and Solidarity in Language Classrooms” in person and remotely on Friday, April 28th and remotely on Saturday, April 29th, 2023. Our keynote speaker will be Professor Henry A. Giroux (McMaster University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest in English and Cultural Studies, Paulo Freire Distinguished Scholar in Critical Pedagogy).
We are accepting proposals that address the needs of future language learners and educators in Language Humanities which focuses on critical pedagogy, and proposals that develop innovative curricula to enable solidarity and resistance through a language classroom. We invite you to propose full panel sessions or individual papers which aim to explore the integration of critical pedagogy into our Modern Language programs through building EDIA (equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessible) based Instruction, Content and Assessments into our language courses.
