What It Means to Be an Antiracist Teacher in a College Classroom

Update | Friday, October 8, 2021

The Office of Academic Affairs and the English Department are hosting a two-part virtual workshop that examines the historical and structural ways most teachers judge, read, and grade language.

Led by anti-racist scholar Asao Inoue, this talk does not focus on people behaving badly. Rather, it pays particular attention to the way racism is perpetuated structurally by our classroom assessment and grading ecologies in courses that teach or use writing performances. The workshops, co-sponsored by the Faculty Professional Development Initiative and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, October 20 and 21, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
