This panel invites presentations that engage with pedagogies which embrace difference yet forge relational identifications and coalitional formations that transcend the self. We are interested in educational practices and teaching tools that have the capacity to move us beyond difference to imagine social forms that rest upon that which connects us beyond and across race, class, sexuality, gender, disability, or religion. The panel will address the following questions: What would be “pedagogies of uniting?” What social, political, cultural or other objectives would such pedagogies pursue? What texts and classroom activities would constitute a pedagogy of uniting?
