Teaching for Equity Fellowship Program (Duke University)
2017 – 2018
The Teaching for Equity Fellowship is a year-long series of workshops that provide tools for addressing issues around identity, race and racism in our classrooms. Developed by the Duke Human Rights Center in the Franklin Humanities Institute, these workshops directly address issues raised by students—from all backgrounds—who report feeling at times isolated and marginalized in class. Over the course of the year, faculty fellows will become attuned to implicit assumptions about values, standards, and cultural norms attached to racial and other identities. And they will gain specific skills and strategies to create a classroom culture that benefits all our students. This program is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.
Disability and Access Initiative
Health Humanities Lab, Duke University
With the support of the Health Humanities Lab, Dr. Marion Quirici (Thompson Writing Program) and Dr. Ashley Elrod (History) coordinate a faculty working group called the Disability and Access Initiative (DAI). This Initiative brings together faculty from the humanities, the social sciences, the Global Health Institute, the School of Medicine, the School of Law, and the Divinity School. Through readings and discussions, participants work toward building disability studies content into their courses and developing a disability-conscious pedagogy. The DAI is hosting two guest speakers this year: Holly Stiles from Disability Rights North Carolina speaks about disability rights and higher education, and Dr. Kevin Ann Huckshorn discusses trauma-informed care. Together, we aim to improve the accessibility of our campus culture, and lead Duke students in promoting disability justice.
