Recently Gender & Society announced the roll out of new modules for our Pedagogy Project. The creator of this module is Dr. Lara Janson.
This lesson plan highlights work by Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw, Dr. Moya Bailey, and Izetta Autumn Mobley.
In this unit, students will gain a deeper understanding of two key concepts developed by the featured authors, Crenshaw’s (1991) concept of representational intersectionality and Bailey and Mobley’s (2019) Black feminist disability framework.
The different sections of the teaching module consist of 3 parts:
Part I: Explain the Core Contributions of the Texts
Part II: Apply Concepts from the Texts to Digital Media to Build Visual Literacy
Part III: Create / Curate Mini-Art Exhibits to Challenge Representational Dimensions of Intersectional Inequality
