2019 Praxis Conference Registration Info:

Please consider attending the fifth annual 2019 Praxis Conference on the UW Seattle campus on Feb 22 (Fri) from 9 am to 3 pm at the Cascade Rooms, Haggett Hall. Registration is now open and available here. There is no cost for attendance and refreshments, but registration should be submitted in advance by Feb 19 (Tue) so that they know how many people to expect.

The Praxis Conference draws on the activist educator Paolo Freire’s conception of praxis as the intersection of theory and practice. Faculty, staff, students, instructors and community partners share insights to enrich both our local/situated and broader understandings of writing, teaching and learning practices, and their personal, academic, and public impacts. It is a lively forum to connect and continue conversations about the important work that takes place across learning contexts.

The theme for Praxis 2019 is “Anti-Racist Pedagogy: Visions and Practices for Institutional Change” and this focus will be used to examine uses of language and literacy in equitable, inclusive, critical, and applied ways. For the first time ever at the Praxis conference, there will be a keynote panel conversation with speakers from the UW Black Student Union, Nova High School, and Parisol // Pacific Rim Solidarity Network, Seattle on anti-racist pedagogy and activism that these speakers are engaging in.
