Behind the Lectern: The motivating instability of teaching
Keywords:empathy, decolonisation, role, instability, community of practice
This response piece engages in the conversation initiated by Maggie McDonnell and Teresa Strong-Wilson on professional identity. It ponders the question of my role as a college-level professor of art history. Whereas numerous academic institutions have started to decolonise curricula to promote diverse perspectives, certain students, believing multiculturalism applies to all across the board, show indifference in learning decolonised points of view. Here, I examine some of these challenges and the several sides of my role as teacher.
