Service learning courses such as Queer Painting, Queer Hip Hop Pedagogies and Comparative Queer Literature center the rights of marginalized groups through: proximity through interpersonal relationships; reinforcement of partners’ core talents and assets; and participatory evaluations. Students, a number of whom identify as ‘marginalized’ witness the spirited advocacy of organizations that mobilize against inequity. Course evaluations have been positive. The panel discussion at COS is inspired by a public reflection facilitated by the Haas Center for Public Service at Stanford in Fall 2018 that focused on issues such as reciprocity and sustainability in a partnership with the LGBT Youth Space and other organizations serving LGBTQ populations. In this follow up dialogue, the cohort of nontraditional educators, representing Stanford staff, adjunct and student instructors and community partners, will discuss their experience of cross-sector and multidisciplinary trespass that has allowed them to foster new praxis and platforms for open and ethical dialogue on community engagement and learning. They will promote the practice of participatory reflection and evaluation and argue that this is has been key to their development as emerging engaged scholars and practitioners.
