ITS Workshop & Book Launch: “Disrupting Hierarchy in Education: Students and Teachers Collaborating for Social Change”

Dr. Hakim Williams, Hana Huskić, & Christina Noto
Moderated by Peter Coleman
Thursday, March 28, 5:00-7:30 pm
Milbank Chapel
Reception in Everett Lounge 

The Department of International and Transcultural Studies, the Morton Deutsch International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution (MD-ICCCR) and the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict and Complexity (AC4) invite you to the book launch of Disrupting Hierarchy in Education: Students and Teachers Collaborating for Social Change (Teachers College Press).
This timely book features rich examples of students and teachers, defined as learning partners, disrupting hierarchy in education by collaborating on social change projects. At the book’s core is Paulo Freire’s theorization of students and teachers working together toward co-liberation. Co-written by learning partners, each chapter in this collection highlights a social change project that puts Freire’s theories into action. Projects span a range of academic disciplines and geographical locations from K–12, university/college, and non-formal educational contexts. Appropriate as both a textbook and a primer on collaborative social change-making, Disrupting Hierarchy in Education offers inspiration and models of community-engaged learning programs from across the globe. Topics include community education, public writing, using media for popular education, adolescent and youth development, climate change education, peace and justice leadership development, revolutionary nonviolence, literacy teacher education, citizenship education, development of Latin American studies, palliative care, reflections on identity and subjectivity, antiracism education, trauma-informed pedagogy, wellness, and art curation.
Dr. Peter Coleman, Director of the MD-ICCCR, will moderate the event, and the co-editors will discuss some of the main ideas in the book and the process that brought them together.
