Weekly Discussions on Systemic Racism
Streaming Tuesdays at 8:00pm on the A&H Council Facebook page
June 30 to August 11
The highly visible, viral, and vicious nature of racism in 2020 has sparked prolonged protests and left many wondering how we move forward. For many scholars of race and racism in the US, this moment is both exhausting and exhilarating. We have long been aware of the ways in which racism is entrenched in American histories and remains equally pervasive in the modern-day. Yet the sustained outcry again systemic racism today suggests renewed possibilities for change.
Whether you are new to this work or find yourself renewed and returning, we offer opportunities for learning and progress. This summer, we’re partnering with the Arts and Humanities Council and the College of Arts and Humanities Institute to bring you a weekly panel discussion with experts on race and racism.
Confronting Racism is a series of conversations with faculty experts that will run from June 30 to August 11, streamed online through Facebook. Every Tuesday at 8 pm, we will host a panel of scholars, from within IU and without, to discuss how racism plays a role in topics as diverse as urban geographies, protests, technology, and global systems.
