In his remarks, Dr. Thompson will focus on race as a potential subject of instruction, and will analyze ethical matters related to placing race in the curriculum in this way. In doing so, Dr. Thompson’s talk addresses some of the more popular approaches to teaching race as a subject, considering whether and how they might be compatible with one another. The talk explores varied understandings of race and the complexity of racial identity formation as a pedagogical goal. It also provides a brief overview of arguments for and against what is commonly understood as anti-racist education.
Presented by the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education and Department of Philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences.
This address will be delivered in hy-flex format; both in-person and online attendance are welcome.
