When we talk about community-university collaborations, some powerful words are ill-defined; other critical words are conspicuously absent. How can wrestling with these words affect our practice?
Please join us for a one-day event at The New School focused on developing critical conversations around “civic engagement” and the pedagogy and politics of teaching “with communities.”
