    On Friday, June 12th, from 12:30-1:30pm EST, Professor Stephanie Power-Carter will engage in a conversation based on research her 2019 joint research with Zakeri and Kumasi, on how black youth in a community literacy intervention program (CLIP) use languaging to make visible their agency and resilience "by situating, negotiating, contesting the perception of their own as well as those of others" (p. 198). (See attachment). Faridah Pawan and Michelle Benegas (TEIS Chair and Chair-Elect respectively) will moderate.

    Professor Power-Carter is in the Department of Literacy, Culture and Language Education at Indiana University. Her research and teaching interests include a broad range of issues covering equity and inclusion, specifically around the area of African American youth literacy and education, sociolinguistic ethnography, critical race theory, Black feminist theory, research on whiteness, and critical discourse.

    Join us for an hour-long conversation (30 minutes of discussion about the research and 30 minutes of Q & A.

    Hello,
    Just tried to join via this link and there seemed to be a problem with a pornographic video showing?
    Hope you were able to meet in spite of apparent zoom bombing.

    Hello,

    The talk went well until that unfortunate zoom bombing happened. Dr. Power-Carter spoke powerfully about her research and the ideas behind it. Unfortunately, the Q&A session did not go as well due to the bombing. Anyways, thanks for the webinar. I would love to join in again in the future if there will be more. Password protected rooms might prevent such a situation from happening again in the future. Take care, everyone.

    Best,

    Kevin
