URBAN Education Node Human Rights Webinar (Wed, May 24, 12pm-1:15pm Mountain Standard time): The purpose of the webinar is to facilitate coalition building that helps educators understand how to partner with human rights organizations and use human rights frameworks to support cities, schools and communities in addressing human rights violations.
The URBAN Ed Node has been working to launch coalition-building with human rights organizations and educators. We are hosting a Human Rights Webinar, to be held May 24, from 12pm-1:15pm Mountain Standard Time. We have 50 slots available for the webinar, so if you would like to attend, you will need to reserve your spot by going to the link below.
Attached is a flyer that explains how to access the webinar and who the presenters are, or see below.
We ask that you reserve your spot in the next couple of days, and then, after Monday, May 15, we welcome you to distribute it to your networks.
We also will distribute this to a few other human rights networks at that time.
We look forward to learning with human rights scholars how we as educators can support their organizing efforts, and we look forward to learning how schools are taking up productive human rights frameworks and practices.
Attached is the latest issue of the newsletter of the section on Sociological Practice and Public Sociology of the ASA which includes my piece on our paper on guidelines for editors and scholars producing articles for traditional journals. I assume millions of people will put down their New York Times critiques of Donald Trump to read this and totally change the direction of their careers.
The Education node included a lineup of AERA events in the program this year in Washington D.C.. Thank you to all who presented, chaired, discussed, mentored, attended, and otherwise contributed to the sessions. It was a very rich series, with a powerful Presidential session, a well-attended fireside chat, a couple of inspiring off-site events, where we learned from local community activists and school administrators, and several substantive and generative roundtables and symposia. We again extend our warm congratulations to Researchers for Fair Policing, represented by Brett Stoudt, Darian X, and Caitlin Cahill, who received the inaugural Truth to Power Award for Excellence in Collaborative Research at our business meeting. Thank you to all who participated! Continue reading →
