The event will be available to Femmes members, Pratt Faculty, students, and Alumni.

Join Femmes of the Future and Pratt Historic Preservation, MS for a thought-provoking group discussion on disruptive dialogue at our upcoming event. We’ll delve into the concept of canonic decolonization through a piece of tentative pedagogy, recognizing that addressing gender discrimination necessitates confronting all forms of discrimination. Through disruptive dialogue, we aim to decolonize the canon by exploring real-time decolonized curriculum.

As you enter the room, you will encounter thought-provoking quotes from influential thinkers like Bell Hooks, Audre Lorde, Anne Sing, and more, scattered on bits of paper throughout the room to spark conversation and reflection on decolonization. Engage with these provocative statements and join us in challenging conventional perspectives.

Additionally, don’t miss the opportunity to browse the scanned 1970 booklet created by Frances Halsband, Pratt’s first female Dean of Architecture which offers insights into the history of women at our school.

This event promises to be a dynamic exploration of disruptive dialogue and decolonization, inviting participants to contribute their perspectives and ideas in reshaping our understanding of canon and curriculum. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be part of a transformative conversation.
