Join us in JOY 215 for a talk by Rachel Hershberg on:
Examining (And Promoting) Critical Consciousness in Different Groups of Adolescents and Young Adults
Dr. Hershberg will present some of her research on how adolescents and young adults from different racial, ethnic, and SES backgrounds think about injustices in society and take actions to address them—what philosopher Paolo Freire conceptualized as Critical Consciousness (CC). Dr. Hershberg will briefly describe some of her research with migrant adolescents, White youth in trades schools, and more recently...UWT students. Implications for research and actions aimed at promoting Critical Consciousness will be discussed.
