MAA Webinar: Race, Racism, and Our Institutions and Disciplines
September 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFree
“In the wake of recent events and ongoing racially-motivated violence, there have been many institutional responses to raise awareness of race and racism in the U.S. and beyond. This second Medieval Academy webinar on race, racism, and medieval studies is one such response. Since many of us are beginning our fall semesters, this webinar investigates race and racism as it appears in our disciplines and institutions, many of which were founded on explicitly racial grounds. The panel is designed to make us think about the structures which uphold bias practices, consider the effects of these practices on students, scholars, and scholarship of the Middle Ages, imagine ways forward, and enact potential subversions to institutionalized habits.
