Messy Conversations for Restorative Justice: Towards Anticolonial, Anti-White Supremacist Anthropology Graduate Training

Monday, October 3, 2022
1:30 - 3:00pm
Room 225, Friedl Building
In person

This presentation features racially minoritized anthropologists' stories about their experiences in US anthropology graduate training to illuminate how white supremacist logics and emotions become a roadblock to establishing equitable graduate training in historically white anthropology organizations. Highlighting how structural violence and everyday violence are intrinsically intertwined and co-constitutive, this presentation concludes with a discussion about everyday equitable praxis that can help move out of the vicious cycle of structural everyday and everyday structural inequities in historically white anthropology organizations.

Takami Delisle is a cultural anthropologist with specializations in critical race studies, critical university studies, and institutional ethnographic research. She earned a PhD in anthropology and a graduate certificate in Gender and Women's Studies from the University of Kentucky and is currently working on a book project based on her dissertation, "Breaking the Silence of Racially Minoritzed Students: Structural and Everyday Injustice in US Anthropology Graduate Training."
