Critical Studies Hosts Z. Nicolazzo Workshop!
September 17, 2018
PNCA MA in Critical Studies Workshop
Z. Nicolazzo, Saturday, October 13, 11:45am-1:15pm, Mediatheque
Dr. Z Nicolazzo is Assistant Professor of Trans* Studies in Education in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona. Her research focuses on mapping gender across college contexts, with a particular emphasis on affirmative and resilience-based research alongside trans* students. She has published her scholarship in a variety of inter/national publication venues, and her first book, Trans* in College: Transgender Students’ Strategies for Navigating Campus Life and the Institutional Politics of Inclusion, was awarded the 2017 Publication of the Year from AERA’s Division J.
“Teaching While Marginalized: What Our Bodies Teach Us About Critical Pedagogy”
In this interactive workshop, Z Nicolazzo will discuss the always already embodied nature of critical pedagogy for people with marginalized identities. She will engage participants in self-reflection and group-based activities to explore what it means to "show up" with marginalized identities in classroom spaces, how we are met with student resistance, and the possibilities for meeting such resistance to navigate the academy.
Be sure to see MA Critical Studies Student, Jason Le, moderate Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson's discussion of their performance, Make Banana Cry!

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will be at GMA Architects, where Miller’s ongoing exhibition serves as a backdrop for the talk.
