New Diversity & Justice course, GRDSCH 640

The Graduate School is pleased to announce a new course for the Spring quarter entitled: “Engaging with Microaggressions & Macroassaults- Equity in Praxis.

We invite graduate students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines to participate in this interdisciplinary course which seeks to equip participants to critically engage with microaggressions and macroassaults- both the everyday insults and hostilities as well as the structural, large-scale policies and practices that perpetuate the oppression of marginalized populations. Inspired by Paulo Freire’s notion of praxis (the intersection of reflection and action), the course will work to empower participants to address, interrupt, and confront these forces in their personal and professional lives.
