Ph.D. Program in Theatre and Performance


This session will provide resources for scholars and educators committed to anti-racism from the personal through the political. Addressing our own locations within the concrete effects of white supremacy, colonialism, and patriarchy can help us design better syllabi, orient our classrooms and interactions around our values, and grow as scholars. For the first hour we will discuss anti-racist approaches to research and share resources. For the second hour we will focus on tactics for creating safe yet generative discussion space and other concrete matters of facilitating anti-racist classrooms. Esther Neff hosts, with Prof. James Wilson and student contributors
