Building Publics 2022: Language Pedagogy and Social Justice

Building Publics showcases how our Public Humanities Graduate Fellows bridge humanistic thinking with civic engagement and social justice, scholarly research with public building and communication in order to unleash new, more critical modes of scholarly imaginations.

Participants:

David Borgonjon, Public Humanities Fellow and PhD Candidate in EALAC, Columbia University

Maya Krinsky, Associate Director of Multilingual Education, Rhode Island School of Design

João Nemi Neto, Senior Lecturer in LAIC, Columbia University

Other Speakers TBC

When we learn a new language, questions of social justice are often reserved for “advanced” levels. Even worse, language pedagogy can sometimes reproduce dominant ideologies that are racist, classist, sexist, ableist, and/or homophobic. What if we tried to integrate questions of social justice into language pedagogy from the very first day? This roundtable discussion will invite educators working with English, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages to share their theoretical and practical perspectives. Participants, especially those with experience of language teaching/learning and multilingual environments, will also be invited to share their reflections. The event will conclude with us working on a provisional set of questions and tips for people interested in practicing language pedagogy with an eye to social justice.

About the Speakers:

Maya Krinsky (she/hers) is a visual artist and language learning specialist based in Providence, Rhode Island. Central to her work in art and education is the pursuit of compatibility between language learning and lived experience. She teaches studio and seminar courses at Brown and Rhode Island School of Design, where she is Associate Director for Multilingual Learning at RISD’s Center for Arts & Language. Her interdisciplinary art practice consists primarily of photography, film, drawing, and collaborative projects.

João Nemi Neto (he/him) is a Senior Lecturer at Columbia University where he teaches Portuguese language, and courses on sexuality and Brazilian Lusophone cultures. His research focuses on queer pedagogy, Brazilian culture and visual media. His latest book is Cannibalizing Queer: Brazilian Queer Cinema from 1970 to 2015 (Wayne State University Press, 2022).
