Valuing Difference: Diversity, Inclusion, and the Future Direction of Slavic Studies

Mon, November 25, 8:00 to 9:45am, San Francisco Marriott Marquis, Floor: 4, Pacific C

Session Submission Type: Lightning Round

Brief Description

ASEEES’s Committee for the Advocacy of Diversity and Inclusion (CADI) was created by a vote of the ASEEES Board in 2018 in response to the need for a standing committee within the organization that can coordinate and guide ASEEES’s efforts both to diversify and to make more inclusive its membership and the broader field of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies. This Lightning Round panel highlights efforts being made in the field to address these issues in curricula, courses, and conduct through engaged pedagogy in the classroom and beyond. Presenters will focus on curricular change, pedagogical/methodological change, and changes in administrative actions as part of the re-envisioning, development, and implementation process of effecting change in Slavic Studies towards increased inclusion and diversity. Recommendations for creating programs and policies in SEEES that challenge racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and discrimination against people with disabilities in society and within SEEES will be examined as part of a larger critical pedagogy.
