How do we teach literary texts that are shaped by imperialism and racism? Do we need to rethink how literature from the global North is taught in English departments? How do we think about the violence of racist texts on educators and students of color?
Join the UNO Department of English in a discussion about how Jean Rhys’ novel, Wide Sargasso Sea, rewrites Charlotte Bronte’s, Jane Eyre, and how the processes of teaching/reading this text in the classroom creates opportunities for decolonizing the curriculum and anti-racist pedagogical praxis.
Featured speakers include Dr. Tanushree Ghosh and Dr. Kristin Girten.
