CU Boulder School of Education Assistant Professor José Ramón Lizárraga and Persia, renowned drag queen, educator and activist, will discuss how drag as a political artform mediates learning and transformation across communities. 

Lizárraga is an assistant professor of learning sciences and human development at CU Boulder and also a practicing visual artist and musician. As a learning scientist, Lizárraga uses ethnographic, video and multimodal research methods to investigate the role that social networks, television and other digital new media play in learning for both teachers and youth. Currently, his work examines the collaborative practices of teachers and adolescents in virtual and in-person learning.

Persia is a San Francisco Bay Area drag queen, artist, educator and activist. They came into the national spotlight when their music video Google Google Apps Apps (a satirical commentary on gentrification and displacement) became viral. Currently, Persia is an ambassador for Drag Out the Vote. 

Advanced registration for this Zoom meeting is required.
