Race and Rights in a Globalized World
Description of offering:
Recent global events, including the disparities laid bare by the coronavirus pandemic and America’s racial reckoning in the wake of ongoing acts of systemic racism and violence against communities of color, have foregrounded the urgent need for deeper understanding and discussions of race as a form of identity in a globalized world. How is racial identity expressed, contested, and transformed across (trans)national contexts? What is the relationship between race and ethnicity, citizenship, and rights? Why do racism, colorism, and other forms of discriminatory oppression persist? What do racial justice and anti-racism look like around the world? This workshop will explore the historical and contemporary underpinnings and lived realities of race as a form of identity with related implications for social equity, inclusion, and justice.
