In the midst of the recent racial justice movement, it is important to consider how antiracist teaching can contribute to an inclusive classroom environment. As Ibram Kendi writes in How to be an Antiracist, "There is no neutrality in the racism struggle." As such, this session will focus on how instructors might de-colonize the curriculum and prioritize representation for BIPOC students. We will offer strategies and resources for interrogating communication styles and what is privileged in the classroom, facilitating challenging conversations that may arise from antiracist teaching, and dismantling racial hierarchies that impede student success.
