Downloading and Internalizing Maps & Meaning (IISS)
* Explore the origins of conceptual maps and their influence on thinking, imaging, valuing
* Connect conceptual maps to decisions and actions structuring relations of domination
* Challenge assumptions, stereotypes, and systems that marginalize people within and between (and across) racial-ethic-cultural groups.
In order for us:
· To understand how we may come to embrace difference through transformative inclusion practices.
· To create the emotional context and to experience the basic processes of an intercultural and antiracist dialogue.
· To understand how we come to receive and internalize the oppressive structures of thinking and understanding.
· To come to question our received world view and social stereotypes and to see what these stereotypes look like in social interactions.
