October 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The CUNY School of Professional Studies presents Becoming Activist, an engaging online presentation about successful critical literacy and youth organizing taking place outside of traditional classroom spaces.
Dr. Elizabeth Bishop will present lessons learned from her research with five young, self-described activists in New York City, demonstrating how the development of critical literacy skills plays a significant role in how young people experience and address experiences of injustice.
Dr. Bishop is an educator, researcher, and youth advocate. She serves as Director of Curriculum and Outcomes Evaluation and Supervisor of Digital Leadership and Learning at Global Kids as well as Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Youth Studies Program at CUNY School of Professional Studies. Her first book “Becoming Activist: Critical Literacy and Youth Organizing” was released by Peter Lang in 2015 and her second book “Embodying Theory: Epistemology, Aesthetics and Resistance” will be out in 2018. She’s online @DrBishopDigital.
