Pedagogies for Peace Podcast

Dp 1200x630px

So many people never see themselves represented within the classroom, and Ph.D. programs offer little (if any) pedagogy training, let alone having to do with intersectionality and decoloniality. We live in a time where old classroom conversations and ways of thought are proving to be insufficient. New approaches are needed. 

Join hosts Ashley Bohrer, assistant professor of gender and peace studies, and Justin de Leon, visiting assistant professor, for Pedagogies for Peace: Intersectional and Decolonial Teaching, an audio series that foregrounds critical pedagogies with a focus on intersectionality and decoloniality. Each week, Ashley and Justin are joined by professors and teachers for wide-ranging conversations about new ways of teaching peace. 

Episodes are also available at Apple Podcasts, Google PlayStitcher, Spotify, and TuneIn.

Music for the podcast was created by David Hazardous, and artwork was created by Dona Park
