On Friday, June 12th, from 12:30-1:30pm, 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).
