The Critical Political Science Pedagogy project seeks to cultivate an engaged community of political science instructors at Yale who share a commitment to center topics (e.g. race, gender, intersectionality) often considered marginal to “core” political science, and to integrate practices of democratic participation and open inquiry into the political science classroom.

Through a series of seminars and working group sessions, guest speakers and graduate student and faculty instructors will work together to articulate how the tools of critical pedagogy, broadly construed, enable us to reimagine our approaches to the introductory teaching of political science.

Supported by a generous Teaching Innovation Project grant from the Yale Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, this project is jointly convened by Da’Von Boyd, Sarah Khan, Giulia Oskian and Joy Wang.
