Publics, Politics, and Pedagogy: Remaking Higher Education for Turbulent Times
The Futures Initiative is pleased to invite you to attend our spring forum on “Publics, Politics, and Pedagogy: Remaking Higher Education for Turbulent Times.” Part of our “University Worth Fighting For” series, this event is an opportunity to think through the unique intersections between interdisciplinary research, pedagogy, equity, and institutional change. We hope that you will join us for a series of roundtables and interactive workshops featuring faculty and students involved in our team-taught courses, the CUNY Undergraduate Leadership Program, and Humanities Alliance to address topics ranging from the current states and stakes of higher education to the relationship between aesthetics, politics, and citizenship.
Featured speakers include: Gilda Barabino, Claire Bishop, David Caicedo, Katherine Chen, Colette Daiute, Cathy N. Davidson, Shelly Eversley, Ofelia García, Amita Gupta, Wendy Luttrell, Ruth Milkman, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Rosario Torres-Guevara, and many more, including graduate and undergraduate students across CUNY.
