In her book, “Justice on Both Sides: Transforming Education Through Restorative Justice,” Maisha T. Winn asserts that four pedagogical stances: History Matters; Race Matters; Justice Matters; and Language Matters are essential for learning communities to engage in their pursuit of justice. In this talk, Winn argues for a fifth pedagogical stance, Futures Matter, using Stetsenko’s Transformative Activist Stance (TAS) framework. Winn is the Chancellor’s Leadership Professor and the Codirector of the Transformative Justice in Education (TJE) Center in the School of Education at the University of California, Davis. Her program of research examines the ways teachers and/or adult allies for youth in schools and in out-of-school contexts practice “justice” in the teaching of literacy. Sponsoring departments include: Central New York Humanities Corridor; The Douglas P. Biklen Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series; School of Education; Writing Studies, Rhetoric, and Composition; David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics; Women’s and Gender Studies; Lender Center for Social Justice; English; and the Humanities Center.
