March 5 2022: Cultivating Antiracist Dispositions and Pedagogical Practices in College Mathematics Classrooms

Abstract: Research has emphasized the importance of empowering racialized groups in college mathematics classrooms, as there is a need to dismantle racialized barriers that keep minoritized students from thriving in these spaces. Also, attention has been devoted to Critical Race Theory (CRT) over the last year given the recent attacks on this theoretical perspective. This session will provide initial understandings of CRT, its explanatory tenets, and its connection to undergraduate mathematics education. In so doing, participants will engage in critical conversations about antiracist work and brainstorm ways to cultivate antiracist dispositions and pedagogical practices.
