    TEACHING IN THE FACE OF IMMIGRATION, INCARCERATION, AND BORDERS: ETHNIC STUDIES RESISTANCE

    The California Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education (CA-NAME) invites students, teachers, community members, artists and university faculty to participate in this year’s conference, “Teaching in the face of immigration, incarceration, and borders: Ethnic Studies Resistance.” Our conference theme is a response to the current political and actual intensification of surveillance, disciplining, and rigid categorization of minoritized groups in the borderlands. Our theme also recognizes that California is at the forefront of an ethnic studies movement to resist and reinterpret the disciplining ideologies and violence directed at disappearing minoritized communities through the implementation of ethnic studies K-12.

    Conference sessions share how ethnic studies, decolonial, and critical multicultural education projects refuse unjust and inequitable narratives. Sessions will foster dialogue, share research, best practices (in teaching, curriculum, and organizing), and collaboration.
