Join us on Wednesday, July 7th @ 5pm EST for an informative conversation with educator, Dr. Gema Cardona, discussing Critical Race Theory. Dr. Cardona earned her doctoral degree in critical studies of race, class, and gender from the University of California, Berkeley. Her research is situated at the intersection of critical race theory (CRT), critical pedagogy, and Latinx studies in higher education. She has taught at the college level for the past six years, under the Education Minor Department at the GSE and in the Sociology Department at Mills College. She is also the author of “The Emotional Labor of Race-Gender Dialogue in Higher Education,” published in the Berkeley Review of Education. In this invited piece, she reflects on the role of emotional labor when employing the CRT tenet of experiential knowledge and storytelling in higher education classrooms. As an educator, Dr. Cardona practices Freirean principles of emancipatory and liberatory education to empower college students to be critical thinkers.
