Reflections on and Next Steps for the Challenging Complicities Project
Friday, Oct. 8, 2021
noon - 1 p.m.
Please join us for a discussion on "Reflections on and Next Steps for the Challenging Complicities Project" (in collaboration with the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship). As part of last year’s International Roundtable, the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship launched the Challenging Complicities project in an effort to encourage departments across campus to examine the colonial / white supremacist / exclusionary roots of our disciplines or administrative practices. Academic department project participants will talk about what they learned and next steps they are taking. Participating colleagues will also share ideas and recommendations for other departments or units on campus that are considering taking on a challenging complicities project. We will discuss how to strategize ways to sustain efforts to challenge our complicities with the forces and ideologies of anti-Blackness, colonialism, exclusion, etc. An email with the link to join the event will be sent via swap-news.
