Pedagogy of Dignity Workshop

On Sunday September 30th 2018, the Center for New Narratives in Philosophy at Columbia University will host its second Pedagogy of Dignity workshop at Columbia’s Lenfest Center for the Arts, in connection with the Pedagogies of Dignity working group at the Center for the Study of Social Difference. The workshop will bring together 40 formerly incarcerated students, academics, prison educators, activists, undergraduates, and postgraduates, to discuss the benefits and challenges of prison education, present our pedagogical ideas, and prepare participants to teach in Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC).

A full recap of the event can be read here on the CSSD blog.
