Keynote - Pedagogies for a More Just City

 

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 13:00 to 13:50
Speaker: 
Sara Kendall

Sara Kendall is a Co-Director of Kite’s Nest, a center for liberatory education for children and teenagers in Hudson, NY. She is also an M.A. student in the Individualized Studies program at Concordia University. She will be the keynote speaker for the 4th Annual Emerging Scholars Symposium in Oral, Digital, and Public History.

In Sara’s words...

My research builds on my work as an educator and organizer in the small city of Hudson, New York. I begin by unpacking dominant narratives about urban revitalization and at risk youth, looking at what these stories can tell us about gentrification, race, and how we construct and imagine success for our cities and for our kids. Reflecting on our ongoing work with youth in Hudson, I make an argument for the critical role educators can play at the intersection of community organizing, youth work, and urban development. I consider how we can develop teaching pedagogies that aim not only to transform the experiences of young people, but the places we live.
