Description

Presenters: Dr. Esther Alarcon Arana, assistant professor, and Dr. Norman Rusin, adjunct professor, Department of Modern Languages

Critical concern: Racism, women

Who says one cannot talk about social justice in another language? Despite research evidence demonstrating the importance of dealing with issues of social justice in the classroom, language textbooks don’t seem to believe these issues are part of the intercultural competence that the student must learn in the second language classroom. This workshop will provide examples of how to discuss these issues through music and food.
