From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies
This series is designed to elevate conversations about teaching on race and continued disparities in our field while also bringing research by scholars from underrepresented minorities and/or on communities of color to the center stage.
The series will comprise four segments: two pedagogy webinars; two lightning rounds on the experience of scholars of color in the field; and two roundtables featuring research by scholars from underrepresented minorities and/or on racial minorities, concluding with a forum on the reception of the Black Lives Matter movement in our field.
Spring 2021 sessions will take place on Fridays in February. For more information, please see https://www.ucis.pitt.edu/crees/race-in-focus
February 5, 2-3:30pm (ET); 1-2:30 (CT); 12-1:30 pm (MT); 11am-12:30 pm (PT)
