For Tuesday 4/23: gender and organizing

WhitePrivilege_cartoonAs usual, we’ll start the class with discussion of important news stories in the current Amsterdam News, so have yours with you and be prepared to discuss an important story of the week. Also, if you caught the documentary film on the Central Park Five on PBS on Tuesday the 16th at 9 PM EST, let’s talk about that, too.

Read Jewel Woods’s “Black Male Privileges” checklist. The reading’s short this week, but think practically about how Woods’s ideas might shape the way you interact in doing work in the community and also the internal dynamics in organizations you work (or will work) in.

Finally I gave out both the assignment for the final paper (AAS470_FinPaper_F12) and for presentations for the final day of class (AAS470_Present_S13) last week. Look them over, start thinking about how you’ll approach them, and bring questions with you.
