Making Our Voices Heard: Co-Writing and the Praxis of Equity - Researching and Teaching for Social Justice
March 15th, 12:00-1:00pm via Zoom Tala Khanmalek, Ph.D., Women and Gender Studies CSUF Alumn Gina Waneis
How can researching and teaching come together in the service of social justice within and beyond academia? This presentation focuses on how to write—and publish—articles with students as a transformative learning practice that bridges research, teaching, and social justice. It will cover the whole process step-by-step, from laying the groundwork for intellectual collaboration to journal publication, and include many tips based my own experience co-authoring an article with three CSUF students (one graduate and two undergraduate students). As undergraduate co-author Gina Waneis and I will discuss, the topic of our article—Middle Eastern student activism in higher education—is directly connected to social issues that shape our everyday lives. Through our long-term collaboration, which began in the classroom and continued in my role as the advisor to Gina’s student group, we contributed to a growing body of scholarship on Middle Eastern racial formation. Most importantly, we did it in a way that showcases the praxis of equity and how researching and teaching, when combined, can make a difference for first generation students and scholars of color. The presentation will conclude with a Q&A.

Edited February 2020 to accurately reflect CSUF Ethinic Studies Faculty position.
RACE Executive Board joins the faculty of the Women and Gender Studies Department in support of AB1460. RACE has submitted a letter to CSUF Academic Senate. The Academic Senate will be discussing support for AB 1460 today, Oct. 31 at 11:30am in PLN 130. At the same time, CSUF Ethinic Studies Faculty has submitted support for an ethnic studies requirement at CSUF but not for state mandated curriculum.
Assembly person Weber has submitted a bill to require that all CSU students complete a ethnic studies requirement. This is the assembly bill that has been proposed. The CSU has asked for feedback
CSU Fullerton's Academic Senate will be discussing this bill at the specially scheduled meetings on Sept. 26 and a special meeting called for October 31. The meetings are 11:30am - 12:50pm in PLN-130.
For those who may want or need additional background, it would be worth reviewing at least the following before the meeting (AB-1460 is a CA Legislative bill currently “held under submission”):
· Report of the California State University Task Force on the Advancement of Ethnic Studies
· AB-1460 California State University: graduation requirement: ethnic studies
