We invite participants to discuss how attitudes about race influence and challenge the classroom environment in American universities. Questions to consider: How does the current post-racial discourse influence discussions of race in historical and contemporary contexts? What pedagogical strategies have been successful? What has not worked? In what ways do both students and instructors contextualize race within the classroom and in the larger university setting?

For more information contact Johanna Rossi Wagner at jrwagnerpsu@gmail.com.

In light of continued violence upon Black and Brown bodies, I am concerned about the physical, emotional, and psychological toll such attacks will have on the collective Black male conscience. In an attempt to soothe a friend's pain I mentioned that survival is part of the Black man's experience in America. We have seen them bounce back higher and stronger throughout the course of history. Many of these historical episodes have however left them absent from the collective. Martyrdom is frequent in Black history, but all men of color cannot be sacrificed so that the collective can enjoy American life. It is also obvious that they must do more than just survive, they must be allowed to thrive and soar.

This panel seeks to bring together teacher-scholars who utilize the philosophical tradition of American Pragmatism in teaching literature, writing, digital media, cultural criticism or rhetoric and composition.

This includes those who teach the work of William James, John Dewey and their progeny directly, and those who use pragmatist thought to inform broader pedagogical or theoretical projects.  Whether interested in the semiotics of C.S. Peirce, the neo-pragmatism of Richard Rorty or Stanley Fish, the “prophetic pragmatism” of Cornel West, or any other branch of the pragmatist tradition, all are welcome.

The cultural criminologist Michelle Brown calls for a greater consideration of the various kinds of spaces of enclosure and exclusion experienced by vast portions of the global population. While debates over the United States’ domestic policies of mass incarceration and its policies of imprisonment under the War on Terror may readily come to mind, Brown encourages us to consider how other sites such as refugee camps, migrant detention centers, and black sites blur the boundaries and push the limits of  how we think about incarceration.

Afro-Latinos in the Media: What the media teaches our kids about race, class, and gender identity

We are soliciting essay contributions for the new book, Afro-Latino/as and the Media: What the media teaches our kids about race, class and gender identity.

Essays in this book critically examine how print, film, and digital media positively and negatively represent Afro-Latino groups and their race, culture, and gender identities. The major premise of the text is that media shapes our understanding of the world and how it functions; the minor premise is that the imagery, conversations, and reactions to what is presented in the media influence the minds of youth and their understanding.

Roots at 40: Reflections and Remembrances [Update]

In the final week of January, 1977, the ABC miniseries Roots became the most-watched television program of all time. To the surprise of the show’s producers, Roots became not only a ratings windfall, but a cultural phenomenon, articulating an African-American counter-narrative of American history, provoking a dialogue about the legacy of slavery, and presenting African-American characters with a dignity and integrity that differed sharply from the caricatured representations common to television up to that time. In many ways, the response to the show by the media and the general public constitutes the first of many “conversations about race” that have punctuated the Post-Civil Rights era.
