Cultural Constructions V: 21st Century Pedagogies

The Department of Modern Languages is proud to announce its Vth Biannual Cultural Constructions Symposium, titled 21st Century Pedagogies to be held on Friday March 1, 2013 in Trimble Hall 200 from 9-5.

Over the last two centuries, teaching has evolved to incorporate new pedagogies and technologies to engage a variety of learners, texts, and theories. In concert with these innovations, the symposium will engage a variety of disciplines and theories: critical pedagogy, critical approaches to teaching literature, language, composition or culture, and pedagogical theory and practice.

The symposium will also feature a presentation and discussion of the documentary Maestra (Teacher), a film that follows stories of transformation through the 1961 Cuban Literacy Campaign at NOON. The presentation will feature Jason Wallach, Outreach and Distribution Coordinator of the film.

The symposium is sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages, the Center for Mexican American Studies, the Charles T. McDowell Center for Critical Languages and Area Studies, the Festival of Ideas Global Research Endowment, and Women's and Gender Studies.
