Tanya Diaz-Kozlowski will present “Testimonios of an Instructional Assistant Latinx Professor: Kneading Intersectionality into the WGS Curriculum Using Chicana Feminist Pedagogies” for the Conversando Entre Nosotros: LALS Brown Bag Series Lecture at 3 p.m., Friday, October 20, in Williams Hall, room 314.
Diaz-Kozlowski is an instructional assistant professor in Women’s and Gender Studies. She will share her experiences teaching an introductory women and gender studies course at a predominantly white institution, articulating the barriers to teaching the ontological, epistemological, and material significance of intersectionality. Diaz-Kozlowski uses Chicana feminist pedagogies in the classroom and as an interdisciplinary scholar who aims to invigorate diverse student participation, revitalize curriculum, and dismantle systems of privilege and inequality in educational institutions.
