2024 Annual Conference Globalizing the Community College Curricula
“Embracing Counternarratives For Global Learning”
Dates: January 19-20, 2024
Location: Tucson, Arizona
This conference is designed to provide community college educators with resources to promote international curriculum in their classrooms.
This year the theme is “Embracing Counternarratives for Global Learning”. Conference attendees will explore the transformative power of counternarratives in promoting the global learning characteristic of inclusive and culturally diverse community college curricula.
A counternarrative is a response or alternative perspective that challenges or opposes a dominant or mainstream narrative. It provides a different interpretation of events, ideas, or cultural norms, often aiming to shed light on perspectives, experiences, or historical facts that might have been marginalized or overlooked by the dominant narrative.
Counternarratives can serve various purposes, such as highlighting marginalized voices, exposing hidden truths, critiquing existing power structures, or promoting social change. They are commonly employed in social, political, and cultural contexts to offer a more inclusive and comprehensive understanding of complex issues. Consequently, counternarratives can play a significant role in shaping public discourse, challenging established norms, and encouraging critical thinking about prevailing narratives.
