"Identity Politics & Critical Pedagogies: Experience, Recognition, and the Limits of Empathy"
How do “identity,” “experience,” and “social location” function in relation to “truth claims,” particularly within the contexts of critical educational inquiry?
The panel discussion explores when and how we can “recognize” others, and the political and ethical promises and limits of empathy as a means of addressing difference in the context of injustice and social hierarchies of power.
