Classroom as contested space
This workshop aims at exploring the classroom as a contested space. Our point of departure are diverse moments of crisis that might unexpectedly occur during the regular teaching and learning. We stay with tensions that are embedded in these moments and try to come up with possible ways of reacting to them.
The workshop uses, among other techniques, memory work. It has been developed during a years-long cooperation between students, alumni and a teacher. When thinking about the contested space we have been inspired by feminist and antiracist pedagogies.
The workshop is led by Arlette Garduño (former student) and Marta Kolankiewicz (Department of Gender Studies).

Pedagogic development seminar series
This workshop is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences’ seminar series on “Expanding capacity to explore, share and communicate differences in the classroom”.
How can we understand conflicts in teaching and learning situations? How can we work with them in a constructive and generative way? These are central questions to all teaching in higher education, that have received growing attention. Therefore, the faculty, through a group of teachers from different departments, have created this seminar series to offer spaces for discussion and for practical explorations of difficult classroom situations.
