In the sixth installment of the Global Issues Through Literature Series (GILS), educators will convene to discuss Go: A Coming of Age Novel by author Kazuki Kaneshiro. This discussion will be facilitated by David Kenley, PhD, Dean of Arts and Sciences at Dakota State University.

This year's theme is: Marginalized Voices in Global Context: Centering Overlooked Narratives in Literature

This reading group for K-16 educators explores literary texts from a global perspective. Content specialists present the work and its context, and participants brainstorm innovative pedagogical practices for incorporating the text and its themes into the curriculum. Sessions this year will take place in a hybrid format, with virtual and in-person discussions taking place on Thursday evenings from 5-8 PM (EST). A copy of the book and 3 Act 48 credit hours are provided for each session.
