New York Times columnist Charles Blow (2014) writes “race is a weaponized construct used to divide and deny” (p. 1). From Ferguson to Charlottesville to campaigns like #SayHerName around Sandra Bland and Megan Hockaday, to efforts to build Sanctuary Cities, the significance of race and ethnicity is undeniable. In this intergroup dialogue course, you will engage in meaningful face-to-face conversations around issues on race and other social identities, and examine how those social identities have affected your personal story. Dialogue on Race and Ethnicity will examine racial narratives that shape the American landscape, explore historical and social processes of racial/ethnic formation, and analyze the role of social structures in reproducing racial and ethnic inequality.

Pulse: Exploring Systems of Oppression and Possibilities for Liberation
through a Critical Examination of Orlando
Join us in an important 7-week sustained dialogue focused on the events at Pulse in Orlando this summer. This co-curricular “Difficult Dialogues” initiative offers participants the opportunity to begin to process and heal from this summer’s events. Participants will build affirming relationships within and across their own identities as they analyze the ways in which racism, queerphobia, transphobia, toxic masculinity, and other systems of oppression enable personal violence. Participants will further work together to develop a collective action project.
This co-curricular dialogue will meet every Thursday (3:30-5:30) beginning September 22nd and concluding November 3rd. Meetings will take place at 113 Euclid Avenue, First Floor, Room 105.
Undergraduate and graduate students may sign up to participate via an online registration form [click here].
Students are also welcome to contact the co-facilitators Tiffany Gray (email@example.com) and Abby Fite (firstname.lastname@example.org) by email or to call (315 443 3983) for more information.
