Beyond Kumbaya: Everyday Advocacy
What does it mean to “help” others?
This presentation explores how sincere and earnest advocacy can lead to ambitious claims of making a difference. Feminist activists may lose sight of
the goals of equity and become blind to or ignore others’ perspectives. Dr.
Lather will offer alternative ways of asking questions outside the familiar and usual rhetoric to get to the heart of advocacy against sexism.
Patti Lather is a professor in the Cultural Foundations in Education Program at Ohio State University, where she teaches qualitative research in education, feminist methodology and gender, and education. She is the author of four books: Getting Smart: Feminist Research and Pedagogy With/in the Postmodern; Troubling the Angels: Women Living with HIV/AIDS, co-authored with Chris Smithies; Getting Lost: Feminist Efforts Toward a Double(d) Science; and Engaging Science Policy: From the Side of the Messy. She is a 2009 inductee of
the American Educational Research Association Fellows.
