Transformative Scholarship and Pedagogy Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit seeks to provide a forum for exploring transformative scholarship and pedagogy across religious traditions and scholarly disciplines, challenging the traditional boundaries between scholarship and activism while experimenting with alternative approaches to teaching and the production of knowledge.

Call for Papers: 

The Transformative Scholarship and Pedagogy Unit seeks to provide a forum for exploring transformative scholarship and pedagogy across religious traditions, scholarly disciplines, and institutional types, challenging the traditional boundaries between scholarship and activism while experimenting with alternative approaches to teaching and the production of knowledge. This includes learning and research in conversation with activist communities, non-academic partners, and others who might challenge and expand traditional academic epistemologies, methods, and boundaries. For the 2018 AAR meeting, we invite proposals for a two-hour workshop on implicit bias that builds the capacity of participants to recognize, understand, and develop skills for reducing unconscious bias in the classroom (perhaps with relevance to other higher education pursuits such as faculty recruitment and retention, faculty and staff evaluation, etc.). While many institutions populated by AAR members offer implicit bias trainings, many others do not; such trainings can be part of an ecosystem of bias reduction that makes learning more equitable. We welcome proposals for a two-hour, hands-on workshop designed to help participants begin to build their own bias-reduction toolkit.
