This quarter’s Feminist Pedagogy Labs will center on lively conversations facilitated by the grantees from our grad student Experimentation Grants. Each project challenges traditional disciplinary methodologies, is interdisciplinary in nature, and furthers social justice goals through their knowledge-seeking practice.

Towards Gender & Social Equity in the Design of Agricultural Technologies: Testing a Ugandan Student-Led Learning and Innovation Approach
This project develops an experimental student-led learning program in Uganda that practically addresses gender and social equity in agricultural technology design while training students to engage farmers in participatory processes of innovation. Working with faculty and students in Busitema University’s agricultural mechanization and irrigation engineering program, small-scale farmers, and local coordinators, our “experiment” includes workshops, field visits, and other collective design opportunities for both students and farmers. We center social equity in the technical design processes, challenge traditional agricultural education spaces, and directly apply a collaborative, de-centralized knowledge-making practice through student facilitation.

The Lab
The Lab is a learning and sharing space to wrestle through questions together: What is a feminist or feminist science pedagogy? What does it look like in practice? What can we learn from triumphs and catastrophes in attempting feminist pedagogy in our teaching practice, with colleagues, with community beyond the academy? We aim to foster experimentation and collaboration on feminist pedagogy beyond just a reading group.
