Building Campus-Community Solidarities: Reflections from Project Pericles Fellows

Please join Myrl Beam (Women and Gender Studies) and Roopali Phadke (Environmental  Studies) for a discussion on “Building Campus-Community Solidarities: Reflections from Project Pericles Fellows." In this talk, Beam and Phadke reflect on their work as Project Pericles fellows. They will discuss the complicated work of building campus-community solidarities and grappling with what it means to be in right relationship with community. Specifically, Beam describes the work of mapping the landscape of abolitionist organizing in the Twin Cities alongside students in his Abolition Feminism: Race, Gender, Sexuality and Critical Prison Studies course. In Phadke's Energy Justice course, students are collaborating with the Citizens Utility Board to understand how utilities can better address energy poverty and unequal energy burdens for Minnesota households. Their projects illustrate both the opportunities and the challenges of community-engaged teaching and learning. Lunch will be provided. All faculty and staff are welcome.
