A Teach In

Participants of Teach In event in December 2016

Tufts University, December 10-11, 2016

Tufts students, faculty, and staff, in collaboration with the Department of Education, the Consortium of Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora, and the Program in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, hosted a two-day "Teach In" in December, 2016. This event was held as a site for drawing on rich intersectional histories of experience and knowledge to consider ongoing struggle, resistance, and resilience. The two days brought together community members, activists, students, faculty, staff, and peers from other institutions to organize around direct actions, engage in disruptive practices of care and solidarity, and narrate possibilities for another society.
