Alternative Texts and Critical Citations for Antiracist Pedagogies
2
This is a collaborative and crowdsourced project. This list is intended to highlight BIPOC scholars, women scholars, emerging scholars, LGBTQIA+ scholars, and other scholars on the margin whose work is not often enough used in first year writing and technical communication courses. As more writing programs and departments work to develop anti-racist pedagogies and confront white supremacy and white language supremacy, one thing we can do is ensure our course reading lists are sites that privilege languaging, difference, thoughtfulness, and change. This is a yes-cite list. What texts, videos, podcasts, graphics, and so on should we be using in our courses so that our classes challenge hegemony, patriarchy, language and white supremacy?

Please list the academic and popular written texts, videos, podcasts, images, infographics, photo essays, art pieces, music, and other artifacts that are great for first year writing and technical communication courses.

NOTE: This list continues the work begun by Cana Uluak Itchuaqiyaq (@canaitch) and her Multiply Marginalized and Underrepresented scholars list (see that list HERE). While this list foregrounds both FYW and TC and how those texts might be used in classroom spaces, it owes a scholarly and professional debt to Dr. Itchuaqiyaq and her MMU TCR list.
NOTE: Don't worry about making sure the list is alphabetized unless you feel comfortable doing so. Occasionally someone will visit the list to sort by alpha and make sure everything is readable. If you feel comfortable sorting, etc. please do so. But do not feel obligated!
NOTE: This is a community list. Please do not remove texts. If you see something that does not meet the goals or vision of anti-racist pedagogies, please email NEXTGEN@LISTSERV.UTA.EDU and someone will make sure to address the problem.

Thank you for your help and contributions! Please let others know about the list. Here is the share link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ONAkDvuzGS4xAnqE0p-5kDseWS-5Hs_BDDwMy-wHUnk/edit?usp=sharing
