2.0 [Black and Brown] Definitions of Masculinity: An Intersectional Approach

Co-sponsored with the Standing Committee on Men and Masculinities
Monday March 31, 9-10 AM
Marriott Ballroom 4
Presenters: Cristobal Salinas Jr. & Cameron Beatty

This presentation will illustrate how the schools, communities, and families, have shaped how black and brown men define masculinity, and how they navigate their masculinity through conversations in public and private spaces. Black and brown men are more likely to engage with each other by sharing personal experiences, ideas, and values with politically-correct language in public conversations. Providing private spaces may foster more authentic communication.

Rethinking “The Work:” Fresh Perspectives on Residential Social Justice Education

Monday March 31, 11:45 AM-12:45 PM
Marriott Ballroom 8
Presenters: Katie M. Sadler & Viraj Patel

Archie Bunker, privilege checklists, article discussions- we’ve done it all in training and community building year after year. Many of these tried and true activities, though valuable, do not include a focus on experiential knowledge and individual narratives, both of which are vital to achieving equity. In this session, two presenters discuss their innovative approaches engaging residents, RAs and professional staff in creating inclusive residential communities . We focus on three alternative pedagogical tools, including intergroup dialogue, Restorative Justice, and Theatre of the Oppressed.

Using case studies and preliminary research findings from the presenters’ study in progress on the topic, this program examines the role of learning in contemporary student activism. Presenters will discuss what attitudes, aptitudes, and practices enhance or inhibit students’ and administrators’ ability to capitalize on the potentially rich learning opportunities afforded by student activism. Audience members will have the opportunity to troubleshoot challenges and share best practices with regard to how student activism works in their specific campus contexts.
