Author Event: Sj Miller

Join us at the Jean Cocteau Cinema as sj Miller explores the many ways that schools, and society as a whole, can compassionately supports whatever gender a person identifies with and make space for all!

**Miller recently gave a TEDMED talk!**

sj Miller is a trans, disciplinary award-winning teacher, writer, activist, and scholar whose emphasis is on social and gender identity justice in pre-K through university level teaching. sj is a frequent contributor to the Huffington post, CBS, GLSEN, and PBS and is the recipient of the 2019 AERA Distinguished Contributions to Gender Equity in Education Research Award.

In “about Gender Identity Justice in Schools and Communities”, sj discusses gender identity and why it matters. This text looks into the root causes and ways to change the conditions that have created gender identity injustice. It opens up spaces where evolving, indeterminate gender identities will be understood and recognized as asset-based, rich sources for learning. As educators take up the strategies mapped out in this text, they will learn how to foster school environments that aid all students in becoming agents for social change. This text is the first of its kind to address identity in teacher education with pathways to take up the work in communities and beyond.

    I was surprised last night when Air New Zealand went to the internet to invite me down for a visit… to help me finish my book. I cannot say I was not tempted.  New Zealand is a beautiful place.   As it happens, I have already visited there a number of times.   I’ve been to Auckland […]

  • An Ending

    The last night, the last show.   After eight epic seasons, HBO’s GAME OF THRONES series has come to an end. It is hard to believe it is over, if truth be told.   The years have gone past in the blink of an eye.  Can it really have been more than a decade since my manager […]

    Aside from the idiocy on the internet, what else has been going on of late? Well, I went to LA to moderate the Q&A at the premiere of the new TOLKIEN biopic in Westwood.  The picture is lovely, by the way, and I had a great time.   Got to meet Nicholas Hoult and the lovely […]
