Research Seminar: The affective power of counter stories: Race critical pedagogy for thinking and feeling

Dr Samantha Schulz presenting "The affective power of counter stories: Race critical pedagogy for thinking and feeling".
Teaching for racial equity is important but challenging work. Despite its importance, such work remains largely optional in Australian schooling. Policy frameworks that reference ‘diversity’ or ‘racial inclusion’ tend to be conceptually limited and satisfied tokenistically. Genuine racial literacy requires confronting our differential investments and complicities in racism as structural violence. To support this work with Australian teachers requires negotiating the discomforts necessary for transformative learning.

The field of education is something of a hybrid, continually incorporating insights from other disciplines such as psychology. Given educations emphasis on learning, the behavioural and cognitive psychologies have naturally dominated to date. In comparison the psychodynamic or depth psychological approaches have had limited impact in the education field. There are many reasons why this is so, and I am not arguing for a reversal of this score, however I do think the ground has been broken for a deeper influence in the future.

The use of gesture to aid learning has gained greater interest amongst educators and researchers in recent years. The emerging evidence supporting the use of physical enactment rather than just auditory modes of instruction remains under-explained and unresolved.
