This highly interactive and experiential virtual seminar is intentionally designed to bring students of diverse backgrounds together to talk about racism as a foundation for understanding additional systems and forms of oppression. Students will be encouraged to explore their own social identities, lived experiences, beliefs, and behaviors within a framework of systemic power, oppression, and privilege.
- 1st or 2nd year students of all identities (the goal is to have an intergroup dialogue space where students that hold many different identities are in conversation with each other while learning about and from each other)
- Eager to talk about race and racism with some experience contemplating their own racial identity and curiosity about how racism shows up in the world around them and in their own socialization and upbringing
- Must have a desire to learn more about themselves and about structures of oppression but no dialogue experience, particular jargon, or activism/political work needed.
