Confronting Racism: "Out From the Shadows of Racist Anthropology"

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology invites you to join us for the first discussion of our fall series, “Out From the Shadows of Racist Anthropology." We encourage SoAn students to attend, along with anyone interested in sociological and anthropological perspectives on race.

In this first event, Professor Gareth Barkin will lead a discussion about negotiating the racist history of anthropology through the lens of Michelle Munyikwa’s Scientific American blog post on her own struggles with that topic. We will also discuss the Confronting Racism Discussion Series and the SoAn Department’s broader antiracism collaborations, and introduce the Sociology and Anthropology Student Association (SASA).
