TESANDA is a transnational interdisciplinary network of scholarship and pedagogy born during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Linking educators, scholars, and academics across borders, TESANDA has a collective of folks engaging in interdisciplinary transnational work focused on justice and equity. TESANDA was initiated by EP student Chris Hoffman, EP faculty member Dr. Michelle Fine, Dr. Peiwei Li, and Dr. Barbara Dennis.

TESANDA aims to:

  • Building a network of colleagues in the U.S. and transnationally to share references, methods, experiences on research within and across national borders.
  • Elevate examples of research from the Global South to integrate into our teaching and our literature reviews.
  • Strengthen opportunities from colleagues outside the U.S. to apply for grants that will enhance their local work.
  • Evolve and collaboratively publish a platform for thinking through transnational ethics
  • Deepen cross-cultural psychology (both scholarship and teaching) with a commitment to decolonizing knowledge.
Our second gathering of a collective of scholars, educators, and activists from across disciplines and borders is around the corner! You can still sign up to reflect, listen, share, and plan as we move towards solidifying solidarities and dismantling oppressive power structures. Please fill out this form!
