Talking Race in the Classroom

April 13th
University Hall 056

The WGSS Anti-Racism Committee Presents: Talking Race in the Classroom

Recent political events have led to explosive public debates about race and racism in our country. What effect do these public debates have on college courses that teach students about race? What can students expect in such classes? Instructors from the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) will discuss their approach to teaching race and racism in their classes and will take questions from students who might feel apprehensive or curious about learning the subject matter in college. Students from all majors at OSU are particularly encouraged to attend.

Cynthia Burack, Professor WGSS
Guisela Latorre, Associate Professor WGSS
Juno Parreñas, Assistant Professor WGSS

“Words aren’t enough. They must be followed by action.”

A message from Dean Cheryl Achterberg:

Dear Friends, Students and Colleagues:

Words aren’t enough. They must be followed by action. Yesterday, the College of Education and Human Ecology stood up against racism.

We invite everyone to join us in the critical work that lies ahead, whether you were able to participate in the EHE Picture Project or not. We all can support our colleagues by reminding each other every day of our intent: We need to reinforce our commitments out loud to diversity, justice and inclusion and acknowledge that we create our own culture.

We must be vigilant to protect our community from ignorance and hatred. It is up to us to make our college and the university a safer place for all to grow and thrive.

We must not only write the script, but live it every day. 

Reminder: Our college will host “A Critical Dialogue on Justice, Diversity and Inclusion,” Monday, Dec. 5, from 2-3 p.m. More details to come.
