The application of antiracist thought has recently been recognized by members of the School of Journalism and Communication as a priority for effective teaching, research, and service. This workshop invites participants to examine the context of antiracism in and outside of academia. Dr. Corey D. B. Walker (Wake Forest University) will facilitate a discussion that provides participants with concepts, cases, and networks that further contextualize antiracist thinking. This workshop will provide members of the School of Journalism and Communication with a new base to contextualize contemporary antiracism and to better consider when and where to move beyond such thought.
This workshop is open to all students, staff, and faculty within the School of Journalism and Communication, although attendance will be capped.
