Addressing the historic and ongoing manifestations of systemic racism has implications not only for what we teach in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies but also for how we teach our syllabi. Join us to explore the common challenges instructors encounter as well as the pedagogical principles and methods available for teaching about race and racial justice in our field.

This event is part of the series "Race in Focus: From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies." This series is designed to elevate conversations about teaching on race and continued disparities in our field while also bringing research by scholars and/or on communities of color to the center stage.
