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.
