The Afterlife of Slavery and Surveillance: How Schools are Maintained as Sites of Racialized Trauma

October 22, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm


Co-sponsored by the Center for Urban Education and the Language, Literacy and Culture Program, Dr. Jones’s talk focuses on how curriculum can perpetuate a practice of surveillance, particularly when teaching difficult histories. She will profile examples of classroom activities and how schools are maintained as sites of racialized trauma.

Dr. Stephanie P. Jones is an Assistant Professor of Education at Grinnell College and an alumna of the University of Pittsburgh School of Education. Her work rests at the intersection of teacher education, surveillance and critical race spatial analysis.
