On November 7th, 2013, the CTE and its co-sponsors will welcome noted sociologist C. J. Pascoe to Fordham for a lecture and a faculty workshop on student attitudes toward gender and sexuality on schools and campuses.
C.J. Pascoe is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Oregon. Her research focuses on teenage masculinity and has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Inside Higher Education.
Faculty Workshop on “Teaching Troublesome Topics: Addressing Inequality in the Classroom."
11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Where: Location Change!
South Lounge (Plaza Level, Lowenstein), Lincoln Center Campus. Space is limited to fifteen participants. Interested Fordham teachers should RSVP to email@example.com
Public Lecture on "Bullied: Youth, Gender and Homophobia." In this talk, Professor Pascoe unpacks the assumptions that drive popular discussions about bullying and highlights the important role of gender and sexuality in these aggressive interactions.
Dr. Pascoe suggests that, in addressing issues of gender, sexuality and inequality in young people’s aggressive interactions, bullying would be more productively approached not as acts of pathological individuals, but as a way young people socialize each other into acceptably gendered identities.
4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Flom Auditorium, Walsh Library, Rose Hill Campus.
In addition to her faculty workshop at Lincoln Center and a 4 PM lecture at Rose Hill, Professor Pascoe will be available for informal conversations with interested faculty and students at 10:30 a.m. in McMahon 109 (Lincoln Center), and at 3:00 p.m. in Dealy 330 (Rose Hill).
These events are co-sponsored by The Center for Teaching Excellence, The Gabelli School of Business, The Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Women's Studies, The Department of Theology, The Department of English, Latino and Latin American Studies, American Studies, and Be the Evidence Project.
