What are the conditions currently facing trans and gender non-conforming children and teachers in PK-12 public schools, and what might those conditions reveal about the role of school in society? This talk will begin by addressing the current political context of mounting hostility against trans people in education, and then present data drawn from two studies: first, a mixed-methods study of nearly 400 trans-identifying workers in PK-12 schools across the United States and Canada, and second, from a two-year ethnographic project examining the struggle for gender self-determination in primary education in a large urban school district in Northern California. Taken together, the findings from these studies offer insights into how schools serve to teach the public about the social meaning of gender, including how gender interacts with race.
Dr. Harper B. Keenan was appointed as the inaugural Robert Quartermain Professor of Gender & Sexuality in Education at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Education in 2019. In that role, he serves as the faculty director of SOGI UBC, which is a program supporting self-determination in gender and sexuality throughout PK-12 education. His work has been accepted at a variety of peer-reviewed academic journals and edited volumes, including Educational Researcher, Harvard Educational Review, Teachers College Record, Curriculum Inquiry, Theory & Research in Social Education, Teaching Education, and Gender & Education. He has also written for or been interviewed by a number of popular press outlets like NPR, NBC National News, Reuters, Slate, and EdWeek. In 2022, he was awarded a NAEd/Spencer Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship.

NETWORK FOR EDUCATIONAL RENEWAL
Dear teachers and counselors -
Every year at this time of the year we reach out to you to kindly ask you to promote this early college program among your students. We'd be really grateful if you could support this effort by also reaching out to other teachers and counselors you know. This so far remains the only program in Italian in the U.S. that allows high school students to experience college life, earn credits in advance and be more prepared for AP and advanced courses. We thank you for your help at a time in which joining forces to support Italian (and foreign languages at large) at any level of the education system is more important than ever.
Please reach out with questions and comments.
Cordiali saluti e grazie!
