February 14 – Future Initiatives: Hip-Hop Pedagogy
Join us at The Graduate Center on February 14 at 12pm in room 9207 for a workshop on hip-hop and pedagogy moderated by Futures Initiative Fellow Kashema Hutchinson.
This workshop will be conducted as a cypher, a hip hop cultural event, such as freestyling or battling that takes place in a circle, to discuss the relationship between the elements of hip-hop culture and pedagogy in traditional and non-traditional educative spaces. Narratives and infographics will be used to examine the different types of hip-hop pedagogy. Topics such as identity, school to confinement pathways and mass incarceration will also be addressed. Participants will include students from the Undergraduate Leaders Fellowship.
This discussion is part of the The University Worth Fighting For [cuny.us10.list-manage.com], a series of workshops that tie student-centered, engaged pedagogical practices to institutional change, race, equality, gender, and social justice.
This event is free. Please RSVP here [cuny.us10.list-manage.com], seating is limited!
