About this talk

Is talking about race racist? Are we living in a post-racial society? These and other difficult questions are being posed by many millennials in the classroom. Teaching a diversity-centered curriculum is often considered a difficult task among educators because of the sensitivity of the subject. For many, the difficulty lies in the fear and anticipation of conflict behind the effort. What is the best way to introduce these subjects to avoid dividing students on political lines and to minimize arguments in the classroom? We will address historical and contemporary topics within photography related to sexual identity, race, gender, religion and discuss developing appropriate language and approaches that are clear and specific, along with some best practices for developing an open, honest classroom climate.
