This keynote address draws upon Rendón’s popular 2008 book Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy: Educating for Wholeness, Social Justice and Liberation. Rendón presents a framework for engaging with justice and equity in higher education illustrated by examples from three educators. Drawing on Latina feminist theorist Gloria Anzaldúa’s notion of “conocimiento,” she calls for educators to recognize the contemplative traditions and overlooked strengths of poor communities and families.
