UCSC Education Department Colloquium: Bayley Marquez
“Slavery, Settlement, and the Making of
the Educational Common Sense”
This talk focuses on how Black and Indigenous studies can engage in dialogue with each other through the field of education. Dr. Marquez's talk is based on archival research she conducted for her larger book project Teaching Slavery and Settlement: Plantation Pedagogies in Currents of
Conquest which examines the types of schooling proposed for Black and Native people in the U.S., Africa, and the Pacific from the post emancipation period to the 1940s. Through a close reading of historical documents, Dr.
Marquez will elaborate on how this history contributes to present day educational discourses such as the model minority myth, racial segregation in schooling, and the school to prison pipeline.
