Presenter: Maisha T. Winn, University of California, Davis

In her book Justice on Both Sides: Transforming Education Through Restorative Justice, Winn asserts that four pedagogical stances: History Matters; Race Matters; Justice Matters; and Language Matters are essential for learning communities to engage in their pursuit of justice. In this talk, Winn argues for a fifth pedagogical stance, Futures Matter, using Stetsenko’s Transformative Activist Stance (TAS) framework.

Maisha T. Winn is the Chancellor’s Leadership Professor and the Codirector of the Transformative Justice in Education (TJE) Center in the School of Education at the University of California, Davis. Her program of research examines the ways teachers and/or adult allies for youth in schools and in out-of-school contexts practice “justice” in the teaching of literacy. Winn was named an American Educational Research Association Fellow in 2016. She received the 2014 William T. Grant Foundation Distinguished Fellowship, and was the 2012 recipient of the American Educational Research Association Early Career Award.
