Rise to the Challenge: Strategies for discussing race in your class, Thurs 2/23

Open to faculty

The complex realities of race and racism can too easily become taboo topics on predominantly white campuses. Yet, conversations concerning race are often imperative for deeper understanding in almost every field of study across the academy. When classroom conversations on race get real, they can end in tense, difficult moments that may backfire on the instructor or produce unintended consequences. Dr. Kayon Murray (Education) will present several attitudinal strategies for supporting yourself and your students during these conversations based on insights gleaned from her own research on difficult discussions around race in the classroom.

Thursday, February 23, 12:30 – 1:30pm – ATL Seminar Room, Chafee 241, or remotely
