12018-08-28T13:40:37+00:00Telling Stories and Building Alliances4Module 3.5plain2019-01-02T12:07:12+00:00Is it possible to develop non-exploitative alliance work across disparate sites such as a university classroom in the U.S. and a rural village in India? Is it possible to center marginalized voices? Richa Nagar and Tarun Kumar’s talk is an invitation to dwell on those questions. As they elaborate on their collaborations with rural laborers and small farmers in India, and students in U.S. universities, we are invited to reflect on how education is about learning as well as unlearning and how we can grow through acknowledging and working together by becoming radically vulnerable to each other. It is possible to build alliance by digging into our shared histories and unearthing the relations that bind us across dissimilar geographies. Theater and storytelling play a vital role in the praxis of alliance work.
