TEDxPioneerValley - Ginetta Candelario - "Saber Es Poder": Learning and Teaching about (In)equality

Ginetta Candelario, Associate Professor of Sociology and Latin American & Latina/o at Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts, describes her talk this way: "Over half a century ago, U.S. Sociologist C. Wright Mills coined the term "sociological imagination" to capture a core precept of Sociology: that the life of an individual is both the product and agent of history. It was this idea that led me -- a Brooklyn-born, New Jersey-bred Latina of Dominican and Italian heritage -- to the study and teaching of Latino communities in the United States and of the Hispanic Caribbean, especially the Dominican Republic and its diaspora. As an "engaged" sociologist, I have been offering Community Based Learning and Research courses that insist on integrating the Head (intellectual rigor), the Heart (compassionate understanding), the Belly Button (an appreciation of our mutual interdependence) and the Hands (our engaged action for social justice)."About TEDxx = independently organized eventIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
