Event Title:
Barbara Biber 2023 Convocation | Featuring Harper B. Keenan, PhD, GSE ’11

The annual Barbara Biber Convocation is the centerpiece of the Bank Street Graduate School of Education orientation and welcome for incoming graduate students. The event provides an opportunity for the College community to engage with seminal thinkers on leading issues in education. This year will feature a GSE alum, Dr. Harper B. Keenan, who returns to Bank Street to give a talk entitled, “Going Up the Slide: Finding Joy in Teaching Through Times of Crisis” during which he will draw upon his work in studying gender with children and educators in elementary schools to highlight powerful examples of everyday resistance to oppressive structures in schools and ways that new teachers might embrace resistance as a pathway toward finding joy in the teaching profession during challenging times.
