Charleston, Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, Baltimore, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Rachel Dolezal, Eric Garner, Michelle Obama’s Commencement Address are only some of the names and events that have brought questions about race, privilege, identity, profiling, segregation, prejudice, diversity, fear, representation, inequality, etc., prominently back into the public’s mind. How have events of the last months and years changed race relationships? What do they mean for our teaching? What can and should we do as instructors? How can we incorporate and address them? What are approaches that work in different classes and what have others have tried or are planning to try? Come and learn from each other – hear how others incorporate these events into their classes, what readings and activities our colleagues use, and discuss your ideas, questions, and concerns and get feedback on them.

Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu or x85866.
