This quarter, we hope to discuss the topic of race in academia. We will discuss the experiences of people of color as students, scholars, and educators in our department as well as in the discipline more broadly. We also hope to discuss the challenges associated with studying disadvantaged communities from a position of privilege, and how to apply insights about the nature of racial hierarchy in order to be better scholars and colleagues.

Contact Kiana Juarez, Riddhi Mehta-Neugebauer, Vanessa Quince, Paige Sechrest, or Anna Zelenz with any questions.
