Presentation Descriptions and links:

Panel- “A More Stable Stance: Privileging the Working Class in the Academy”
The first is a panel focusing on the influence that a student’s social and socioeconomic class position has on their navigation of expectations within higher education and their home community, particularly in the writing and literature classroom, and the ways in which instructors respond successfully via curricular and other means.

Roundtable- “Disclosing Class: Pedagogy and the Working Class”

The second is a roundtable that centers specifically on the experiences and insight offered by individuals from the working class. It offers a space for panelists and attendees to reflect on and discuss their working-class backgrounds, including their trials, tribulations, and successes. With this working class insight, attendees, regardless of their class position, will be well-informed of the experiences of those from the working class as well as better equipped to be more inclusive of all students in their courses and course design as they learn about the variations in language, culture, and social structure that exist within every classroom.
