Women of color scholars face many obstacles and hurdles as they teach, write and try to survive in higher institutions. Much of their barrier and difficulties arise from their race, gender and ethnicity and not from any inherent incompetency’s. As women struggle to overcome these racial and gender obstacles, it is important to reimagine new ways of teaching and approaching pedagogy. This panel will examine such ways of engaging pedagogy that begins from the ‘bottom up’ which challenges the dominant pedagogies and leads to activism and new forms of scholarship.
