|9:00||–||10:45||Reflection and discussion about Topic 1 themes and readings.|
On Friday guest speakers Torres, Saldanha, and Sama will give presentations and all participants will engage in discussion of readings, presentations, and key questions. On Tuesday Fellows and Team will continue to reflect on Topic 1 and will participate in a pedagogy workshop facilitated by Institute co-directors Palit and Warren. Small groups will consider one resource and imagine how they might incorporate it into their teaching.
- How is poverty defined and who is counted as poor?
- How do we and our students face/interact with poverty?
- What does it mean to “fight” poverty?
- How does education in the humanities support people in their fight against poverty?
- How do different texts express dimensions of poverty?
- What do we want to achieve by teaching about poverty?
