A conversation with students representing the Women of the Workshop School, female-identifying students from The Workshop School (Philadelphia, PA) talking about how they bring their race, class, gender, and other parts of their identities into the classroom.
During each of the six breakout sessions throughout the weekend, a large number of conversations will take place.

In this conversation, participants will problematize the possibility of being objective in the humanities classroom, consider what their spaces would look like if they removed the illusion of being unbiased, and develop a vision for a truly authentic space for students to question the world around them effectively.
