Presentations by McGill students in Education

Excellent presentation today titled Gendering of foreign languages: The case of Jamaica, by Marcia Malcolm!

Marcia talked about her research which explores cultural identity and language gendering in Jamaica, particularly in relation to the resistance of male students to foreign language learning.  Her work is geared toward transformatory pedagogy that might promote tolerance of difference and critique of “dominant assumptions and practices of language effeminacy.”

DISETalks! is a forum for all members of the DISE community to come together and share their work and pedagogy.

ALL PRESENTATIONS ARE OPEN TO ANYBODY WHO IS INTERESTED IN ATTENDING and are held in room 233 of the Education Building, 3700 McTavish
