During the Spring 2017 semester, faculty and graduate students joined Dr. Vincent Lloyd for the three part workshop in the Critical Race Theory workshop series.It focused on bringing together faculty and graduate students across the College interested in issues of race and difference, seeking to build a sense of intellectual community.
Dr. Vincent Lloyd hosted three workshops, each bringing two visitors to campus to facilitate further discussion on “Race, Religion, and Culture” (Jan. 27), “Race, Islam, and Politics” (Feb. 3), and “Race, Difference, and Theory” (Mar. 17). The six visitors are distinguished or emerging leaders in their fields, including John L. Jackson, Dean of the School of Social Policy and Practice at the University of Pennsylvania, Iyko Day, Chair of Critical Social Thought at Mt. Holyoke College, and faculty from Rutgers, Pittsburgh, George Washington, and Franklin & Marshall.
