Embracing Social Identities: Multimodal Pedagogical Toolkit

The Embracing Social Identities project, developed a multimodal pedagogical toolkit of resources exploring themes of power, gender, and history in the context of Pakistan. Resources available here include: a six-part docuseries, a curricular resource pack and a collection of short stories.

At the heart of this project was an exploration of how power is abused in everyday lives and through larger social structures to marginalise gender minorities in Pakistan, with a focus on power dynamics that have enabled past violence and injustice. The project team explored the manifestations, dynamics, and roots of this violence through a variety of pedagogical tools to help learn, talk, and teach about past violence and colonial legacies.

A team comprised of advocates, activists, academics, and artists from vulnerable groups created a multimodal pedagogical toolkit which includes:

  • The Looking Glass: A 6-episode docuseries with animation and live-action footage that explores the presentations of power and gender in different social spheres in Pakistan.
  • Curricular resource pack: A learning and teaching toolkit that documents the primary research undertaken in this project, the underlying conceptual framework, and existing literature to guide educational explorations of these topics.
  • Short stories collection: 6 illustrated short stories exploring themes of acceptance, knowledge, language, power, gender, and histories. illustrated short stories exploring themes of acceptance, knowledge, language, power, gender, and histories.
  • Research symposium: A community-centric event emphasising interaction, engagement, and discourse for advocacy and promoting minority narratives.
  • Research publication: Academic publications exploring methods for decolonising ethnographic research.
