Diversity, Equity, and Community Committee Spring 2020 Brown Bag Series: Beyond Disengagement – Understanding Latinx High School Youth’s Silence as an Act of Survival

All Day | 1009 LeBaron Conference Room

This presentation, given by Gabriel Rodriguez, Assistant Professor in the School of Education, considers what Latinx youth attending a predominantly white and well-resourced suburban high school can teach us about the varied ways silence is employed. Rodriguez calls this "silence on a continuum," and advocates shifting focus onto deficit-based structures and discourses to dismantle them.
