 (Antiracist Pedagogy Teaching and Learning Discussion 4)

Elizabeth Galoozis, Head of Information Literacy at USC Libraries will lead the fourth in a series of Anti-Racist Teaching & Learning Community Discussions, leading a discussion on the question: How can we acknowledge and work to change racist structures of academia in the classroom?

A joint project of the Anti-Racist Pedagogy Collective and the USC Libraries, Anti-Racist Teaching & Learning Community Discussions are aimed at new and seasoned teachers of all kinds who want to make their classrooms not only safe but also just. Each discussion will be led by a member of the organizing group (see below) and be centered around one or more readings, which the discussion leader will summarize. Light lunch will be provided. Just bring an open mind and a desire to incorporate anti-racist pedagogy into whatever kind of teaching you do.

For more information and to RSVP, go to Please RSVP no later than January 20.
