Workshop on Talking Race in the Classroom

Friday, March 10, 10:00am-12:00 pm

66 West 12th Street, Orozco Room (712)

Facilitators: Shana Agid, Assistant Professor of Art, Media and Communication, and Nadia Williams, Assistant Professor of Diversity and Inclusion and Director of Parsons Scholar Program

Conversations about race and racism, which resonate through teaching and other environments at The New School for students, faculty, and staff have come into particular focus again in recent months and weeks.  Given the heightened attention raised by both police violence and mobilizations like Black Lives Matter, and by the underpinnings of the current political moment, it is crucially important to be prepared to address race and racism in the classroom. In this short workshop we'll explore strategies, tools, and contents for talking about ideas and structures of race in language and visual / material cultures in the classroom.
