Teaching in Times of Crisis: Practices and Promises of Liberative Pedagogies


We live in a time of socio-historical transition on political, cultural, and ecological fronts. What is our role as teachers of theology and religious studies in this time? What pedagogical strategies can we employ in our classrooms in order to create liberative spaces where, together with our students, we can engage the critical questions of our time and envision a new future of justice and flourishing? Join us in a panel discussion, hosted by eight teacher-scholars (Jaisy Joseph, Salih Saligyan, Michael Walker, Jennifer Quigley, Mary Emily Duba, Kyle Brooks, Kyle Lambelet, and me) who will share their own practices of liberative pedagogy and open a discussion of what it means to teach in this time of crisis and open a time of collaborative discussion.
