S03E08 | Teaching While Women of Color: Part 1 by PhDivas published on 2016-05-26T12:52:47Z Grades are in, teaching evaluations are in! Who is being judged and how? Women, people of color, and especially women of color (WOC) have the most to fear about how their teaching and authority are evaluated. In the first of a two-part series, Xine brings together Mariana Alarcon, Elizabeth Alexander, Aurora Masum-Javed, and Renia White from the Cornell English PhD and MFA programs for a lively conversation about teaching while WOC. Join these women as they discuss topics from being seen as "too racially affliated" to whether our students should be "baby revolutionaries" to teaching microaggressions and Serena Williams in Claudia Rankine's Citizen. How do we as teachers learn from our teaching? We reflect on the biases, successes, and failures of our students and ourselves as we continue to develop our pedagogical practices.
