4pm Trigger Warning: Addressing Trauma in the Post-Secondary Classroom

October 20, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

 

Meeting 2: Readings TBA.

This reading group examines trauma in the classroom as an issue of colonialism, sexism, and disability (in)justice. Investigating trigger warnings at universities as a mode of addressing trauma, we seek to deconstruct the complexities of this practice as it relates to concepts of safety, accommodation, freedom of speech and decolonization–among others. What possible strategies can we–as academics, students, administrators and the public–use to confront, navigate, and address trauma in the post-secondary classroom? Download outline.
