ReThink: Heteronormativity in the Classroom
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Facilitator: Shireen Noble
What is “heteronormativity”, and how does it exist in the classroom? This workshop will focus on discussions around a variety of different backgrounds, and look at what knd of behaviour we look at as normal or deviant.
The ReThink campaign was created to address these issues as they occur on our campus at the University of Guelph. The reality is that injustice, social inequality, violence, and bullying happen everywhere in the world and Guelph is not immune. Over the years, Guelph has become more and more diverse, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we are respectful of the beliefs, cultures, and experiences of all of our fellow students, peers, and workers.
