Hosted by Barnard's Writing and Speaking Fellows, the annual Susan Ratner Pedagogy Series welcomes Dr. Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor, Associate Professor of History at Smith College. Dr. Pryor will lecture on navigating uncomfortable conversations in the classroom and the role language and history plays in instigating that discomfort. This conversation builds from her work regarding the use of the n-word in academic spaces. Dr. Pryor is currently working on a pedagogical and historical memoir on the n-word framed by her experience as a biracial woman in the United States who is also the daughter of comedic icon Richard Pryor.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. For more information or if you have any questions please contact the Coordinator of the Writing and Speaking Program, DaMonique Ballou, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
