SkillShops: White Fragility Part 2

Library Fishbowl
[This is the second of a two-part series- all are welcome, but please be sure to complete the readings and videos - go to http://humboldt.libcal.com/event.php?id=1161785 for more information and to register.]

Please note: this 50 min workshop is followed by an extended discussion (ending at 12:30) for those who can stay longer. The main content will be covered within the 11:00-11:50 session -- people are welcome, but not required, to stay longer.

White fragility, the defensive behaviors used by white people to derail and manipulate conversations surrounding race, pervades culture in the US. Coined by Robin DiAngelo in 2011, this nonetheless centuries-old concept has become an important aspect of discussions on race in recent years, including the high-profile murders of people of color (#alllivesmatter) and the political rhetoric employed by the Trump campaign (‘make America great again’).

White fragility is not, however, something that is only perpetrated by other people or in other communities. It is entwined in almost all aspects of life in the US, especially in academia. Participants in this session will examine the factors surrounding white fragility and discuss how it is manifested in our lives and at HSU. We will discuss how it shapes our behavior and what we can do to better understand its role in our relationships.

This week (part two of a two-part series) we'll look into white fragility, with a focus on how people behave when enacting white fragility.
1:00 pm-2:00 pm

Terrorism: As American as Apple Pie

Van Duzer Theater
A lecture by Gayle Olson-Raymer, Ph.D., 2014-15 Excellence in Teaching—Lecturer recipient.

Is terrorism an international problem, or does the United States have its own tradition of domestic violence? Is homegrown terrorism a new phenomenon, or is it deeply embedded in our history? Must terrorism exclusively originate from those who challenge governmental policies, plan revolutionary violence, and act upon their feelings of hate, fear, and intolerance? Or can our nation’s long history of violent and racist policies also be construed as acts of terror committed against its own people?

A “yes” answer to any of these questions requires an historical examination of violence in the U.S. When thinking historically, we can better understand how and why some acts of violence in our past may more appropriately be called acts of terror.

HSU is an AA/EO institution. Disability accommodation may be available. Contact event sponsor at 826-3722.
