Teasing Out Some Complexity in the Understanding of Ourselves

We want to students to become critical thinkers and civically engaged, treating others fairly and working for social justice. They are given theoretical examples and case studies, but are they given the tools to relate these admirable goals to their own experiences and daily practices? An empathy for the other can be found in a better understanding of the self; knowing that one is encountering the world through lenses, filters, perceptions and circumstances just as any Other. Participants will be invited to partake in exercises that can be the beginning of a catalog of exercises that can help students encounter self, others, and the world in ways that are dynamic, complex, nuanced and responsive.
