An OPENHOUSE Film screening of the film “Put this on the Map” Thursday, May 14 from 5:30-7:30pm in COE Lokey 176


This film screening and reception will take place on
When: Thursday, May 14, 2015 from 5:30-7:30
Where: College of Education Lokey Building, Room 176
Hosted by: Doctoral candidate Ally Dean and  EDST 225: Schooling and Representation in Film

Fed up with a lack of queer visibility, young people in Seattle’s eastside suburbs weave together this ground-breaking narrative of shifting identities and a quest for social change. From getting beat-up in a schoolyard to being picked up as a runaway, queer youth exercise courage and resilience daily. PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is an intimate invitation into stories of social isolation and violence, fearlessness and liberation. Professing expertise over their experiences, queer youth provide a candid evaluation of their schools, families, and communities — moving an audience from self-reflection to action.

PUT THIS ON THE {MAP} is 35-minute documentary film directed by Megan Kennedy and Sid Jordan Peterson and produced by Revelry Media & Methods, in a collaborative process with the young people featured.

What does it mean to queer the Teacher’s Desk?
Education Studies 111 focuses on issues and problems in education.  As a culminating critical pedagogy activity in the fall of 2014 every discussion section for this course decorated an old school desk to represent critical themes in public education.
A single section of EDST 111 was filled entirely with LGBTQ students living in the UO Gender Inclusive Student Housing. This group maintained an academic focus on gender and sexuality studies in education.  The LGBTQ cohort professor was the director of the master’s degrees and licensure program in teacher education. The cohort itself was designed as a disruption of heteronormativity in teacher education.  Along with critical pedagogy readings the LGBTQ cohort was assigned the concept of reimagining the teacher desk.  At the end of the term these students were given the actual “Teacher’s Desk” to paint in an act of reclaiming the classroom.
Of particular importance to the project are the following statistics:
 74% of queer students are verbally harassed at school
 61% of queer students report school based harassment get no relief
 Queer students are three times as likely to miss school on a monthly basis
 Queer students have lower grade point averages than their peers
 Queer students are twice as likely to not plan to pursue post‐secondary education
This work has been displayed at the College of Education.

The 2015 UOTeachOUT Education Studies Openhouse will feature talks by Dr. Kevin Kumashiro and Dr. CJ Pascoe. The theme of the Openhouse will be striving for social justice in education.
