Classroom Conversations on Race: A Panel Discussion

Classroom Conversations on Race: A Panel Discussion

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Panelists: Carissa Froyum (Sociology), Abbylynn Helgevold (Philosophy & World Religions), Gaetane Jean-Marie (Dean, College of Education), Ana Kogl (Political Science)

Hear a panel of your colleagues share perspectives on navigating difficult conversations about race in UNI classrooms and other learning spaces. Fresh on our minds are 1) the recent decision at the University of Iowa to cancel a workshop focused on white privilege, 2) a dispute at Augsburg College over the use of the n-word in class and 3) transparency concerns at UNI related to the hosting of rap artist Waka Flocka.

These stories are not isolated, and these issues are very present in our daily lives in higher ed. How can UNI teachers, in classrooms and meetings, best address the discomfort, missteps and strong feelings that attend conversations about race? How can we help frame the dialogue with sensitivity, and as an opportunity to move forward in productive ways?

An additional panel on this topic will take place on Wednesday, April 3. Watch for more information in the April CETL calendar.

Diversity Colloquium: Family Separation: The Impact of Immigration Policy on Children & Families

Diversity Colloquium: Family Separation: The Impact of Immigration Policy on Children & Families

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Presenter: Maria Alcivar, Iowa State University, Human Development and Family Studies

A total of 5 million children in the U.S. have at least one parent who is undocumented/unauthorized, living in the U.S. without proper documentation. These families live in constant fear of detention and deportation due to archaic immigration policies that fail to reflect demographic changes over time. The last major immigration legislation in the U.S dates to 1996, and it was not intended to support families but instead create more restrictions and penalties. Nevertheless, immigrants, with or without status, have become an integral part of the U.S. as workers, families, entrepreneurs, taxpayers and neighbors. But what do we know about the interaction between immigration policy and child welfare? What is the short- and long-term impact of archaic immigration laws on children and families? What is the overall public health impact of anti-immigrant policies?

Sponsored by the Department of Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology, the CSBS, the Office of the President and the CETL.
