Sims Hall, 331

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

Visiting scholar Dr. Aminata Cairo and Syracuse scholar Dr. Diane Grimes discuss their books Holding Space: A Storytelling Approach to Trampling Diversity and Inclusion and Through the Lens of Whiteness: Challenging Racialized Imagery in Pop Culture. Drawing from their respective books, the authors will discuss points of overlap and tension in their work, as well as issues such as, How do the normalized images of whiteness affect our story scape? What can we do about it? Should we do something about it? And if so, what will it require? Finally, how do we make sure that our academic work reaches beyond the academic walls? Join these two scholars as they ponder these questions.
