How trans and non-binary inclusive is your teaching? Learning from student experiences

This presentation explores what we know about the experiences of trans and non-binary students and considers how we might move towards more inclusive practice. 

Please note this event will be held on Microsoft Teams. You can join the event at 16:00 on Wednesday 10 March via this link.

How often could people who have studied humanities or social sciences say that their curriculum had integrated trans and non-binary people and their experiences into the teaching? And how often do educators make sure that students have the opportunity to read work by trans and non-binary authors? A trans and non-binary curriculum is important both so that trans and non-binary students aren’t left feeling invalidated by their curriculum and also so that all students finish university better equipped to act in solidarity with trans and non-binary people. 

Dr Catherine Baker is a Senior Lecturer in post-Cold War History and culture at the University of Hull. Her research projects are connected by an overarching interest in the politics of representing, narrating and knowing about the past. In the context of her teaching practice Dr Baker has also undertaken research into transgender inclusivity in arts and humanities education focusing on questions of trans identity, curriculum design and the inclusive classroom. 

Dr Mel Prideaux will be Chairing the event.
