On this first episode of season two, Michael Borshuk sits down with members of the programming team for the Center's scholarly theme for 2021-2022, Anti-Racism. We hear from Dr. Nadia Flores-Yeffal, dr. aretha marbley, Dr. Jennifer Nish, and Dr. Beau Pihlaja, as they explain what events and ideas provided the impetus for this year's programming and then forecast what topics and contexts we will work through in our various events and activities. What does it mean to be anti-racist in the humanities and what steps must a university take to be anti-racist? How does this year's programming clear up some of the misconceptions that circulate in our public conversations about race, racism, and white supremacy? Where should one begin in one's reading to commit to anti-racism?
