Downtown Lecture Series: “The Power of Stories: Talking about Gender and Sexuality in Schools”


In this talk, Carol Brochin, associate professor in the College of Education, will discuss the power of stories in transforming classrooms and communities. She argues that we need schools that are not just inclusive for LGBTQ+ students but are sites of critical transformation where everyone can experience joy in learning about each other and their communities. Drawing from theory and research, Brochin will examine practices that foster a deep commitment to social justice and a collective sense of care and understanding of all LGBTQ+ people. She will share stories from students, teachers, and books that cultivate a sense of belonging urgently needed during these trying times.
This free, in-person lecture is part of the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Downtown Lecture Series on “Sexualities,” held at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Oct. 12, 19, 26, and Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. Free admission with registration.
