Join the School of Education for our next Faculty Research Brown Bag, featuring Visiting Assistant Professor Erica Wiborg presenting "Complexities in Pedagogy: Analyzing Whiteness Discourse."

This research explores how whiteness dominates discourse in higher education leadership learning environments to compliment and complicate critical leadership pedagogy and teaching methods. This study pushes against written or spoken language as the only discourse studied and analyzes interactional behaviors between students and instructors, as well as how what happens in the classroom is in conversation with the overall curriculum of leadership learning in higher education. The capacity of educational institutions and their actors to influence or alter discursive practices is enormous and this study examines how whiteness discourse is embedded, as well as negotiated in leadership learning.

Each month, the School of Education hosts an informal conversation highlighting the research of a faculty member. These talks are open to all. For the 2021-2022 school year, all events will be held virtually. Watch recordings of our previous talks on our Brown Bag Series webpage.
