DTEI'S TOUGH TALK: STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING TOUGH TOPICS

Navigating difficult conversations is a necessary skill for teaching. As college campuses are cast in the spotlight over debates about free speech, teachers must be prepared for the tricky task of navigating fraught discussions. As instructors we are faced with the task of teaching ideas and concepts that may be contested and challenging for students. Together we will develop strategies for tackling difficult conversations both when they are related to the subject matter and when they are extemporaneous. This event will be lead by Ali Olomi, Pedagogical Fellow.

CALL FOR PAPERS: [WORKING TITLE] ETHNOGRAPHIC WRITING WORKSHOP

What: [Working Title] is currently looking for graduate student presenters and discussants for Fall 2016 and Winter 2017! Please email if you are interested in this opportunity, or visit our website to learn more! [Working Title] is a UC Irvine Anthropology graduate student-led workshop for sharing and getting feedback on ethnographic—or ethnographically inspired—writing. The workshop provides a space to make draft deadlines, give critical feedback, share research experiences, and build academic networks of knowledge production. In the past, [Working Title] has included an interdisciplinary community of scholars, with ties to History, Informatics, Art History, the Graduate Feminist Emphasis, the Critical Theory Institute, and more. The building continues in 2016-2017!

How it works: The protocol is pretty simple: the presenter pre-circulates a chapter- or article-in- progress one week before the meeting. During the [Working Title] workshop, a discussant offers prepared oral feedback, similar to the role of a discussant on a conference panel. Everyone else reads the paper and is welcome to provide feedback or ask questions during the workshop. The format is flexible and informal; there is no "presentation" required—just a paper and a community of readers. Papers can be on any topic, but should be based on ethnographic field research or inspired by ethnographic theory.

When/Where: The workshop generally meets once a month on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons/evenings in SBSG 3323. We are now seeking presenters and discussants for November-June. Best meeting times will be coordinated between the presenter, the discussant, and the [Working Title] coordinators.

Contact: If you're interested in presenting a paper or serving as a discussant this year, or would like more information, please email the coordinators: Danica Loucks, Jen Zelnick, Sandy Wenger, Oviya Govindan, or Anissa Gastelum at workingtitleuci@gmail.com
