Research

How can educators foster, in their teaching and curricula, critical consciousness as the capacity for critical reflection of the social forces that propagate inequality and develop upstander action to challenge injustice? In the social justice curricula that we developed as encounters with the different series of artworks that comprise the Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females (H2F2) — Tapestries and Sculpture by Linda Stein, our purpose is to foster critical consciousness and upstander action to challenge injustice.
