Speaks-Warnock Symposium on Race and Racism at the University
Department of History, University of Delaware
Online via Zoom, Registration Required

From the University of Delaware:

UD now joins other universities who have participated in the Universities Studying Slavery project by launching a campus-wide discussion of the legacies of slavery, segregation and racism at UD and in Delaware from 1743 to the present, as well as the unacknowledged displacement of indigenous peoples from their lands. The symposium is part of the UD Antiracism Initiative, a new multiyear collaborative project with a variety of faculty, staff, and students across the university working to grapple with and repair racism at the University of Delaware and in the state of Delaware.

The four invited guest scholars are professor Alyssa Mt. Pleasant (University at Buffalo), who works on indigenous land dispossession in relation to college and university campuses, as well as professors Hilary Green (University of Alabama), Jody Allen (a UD alumna who leads the Lemon Project at the College of William and Mary), and Rhondda Thomas in English (Clemson University), who have been participating in the national Universities Studying Slavery project at their own institutions.

The Symposium on the History of Race and Racism at the University is co-sponsored by Africana Studies, Art History, Anthropology, English, History, Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Political Science, Sociology and Criminal Justice, Women and Gender Studies, the Center for Diversity Studies, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center, the College of Arts and Science, the Library, Museums, and Press, and the Provost's Office.

Pre-registration is required.
