Reimagining the University: Race and Freedoms Conference
Reimagining the University: Race and Freedoms
This October the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture (CSRPC) examined the intersections of race, white supremacy, social justice, and freedoms as they are practiced and censured within and beyond the context of the 21st century university. Alongside Students, Faculty, Community Members and our Center for Race Consortium partners at Brown, Stanford, and Yale, we considered:
- What does it mean to practice freedom?
- What is the role of “race" and other social statuses/structures in determining whose knowledge, expertise, experiences, and access to freedom counts?
- What is the relationship between white supremacy culture and the practice/protection of freedoms?
- How does campus culture, policy and climate engage, uplift, protect, suppress, patrol, or censure knowledge, experience, and knowers, particularly from marginalized and oppressed communities and positionalities?
