Sheila Marquardt, Assistant Professor of Educational Foundations, gave two presentations at the National Association of Multicultural Education conference in Tucson, AZ. The first was a faculty-student research project, Beyond the Transmissive Mode: Educators’ Political Responsibility in Dismantling Borders, with Education majors Jennifer Kusler and Daniel Bihrle. Sheila also facilitated an interactive workshop, from hate: finding beauty. This workshop was the result of a collaboration among Education major Emily Czichotzki, two high school students from the Red River Area Learning Center, and a Moorhead Public School teacher, Kelsy Jenkins. The focus was “creating with” as a heuristic for breaking down relational borders.
