Online Book Talk: Latina Agency Through Narration in Education, with Carmen M. Martínez-Roldán and Contributors
April 22, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Please JOIN us for a virtual panel book talk with Dr. Carmen M. Martínez-Roldán and contributors to the recent publication, Latina Agency Through Narration in Education: Speaking Up on Erasure, Identity, and Schooling (New York: Routledge, 2021).
“Drawing on critical and sociocultural frameworks, this volume presents narrative studies by or about Latinas in which they speak up about issues of identity and education. Using narratives, self-identification stories, and testimonios as theory, methodology, and advocacy, this volume brings together a wide range of Latinx perspectives on education identity, bilingualism, and belonging. The narratives illustrate the various ways erasure and human agency shape the lives and identities of Latinas in the United States from primary school to higher education and beyond, in their schools and communities. Contributors explore how schools and educational institutions can support student agency by adopting a transformative activist stance through curricula, learning contexts, and policies. Chapters contain implications for teaching and come together to showcase the importance of explicit activist efforts to combat erasure and engage in transformative and emancipatory education.”
A significant volume in the Language, Culture, and Teaching Series, Latina Agency Through Narration in Education is dedicated to” [a]ll Latina women who have fought erasure, whether through small or big agentive and activist efforts; for those who have created networks of solidarity to lift up others and create more equitable learning contexts for our children” — including the late TC Professor Emerita Maria Torres Guzman,” whose social imagination had no limits.”
