The School of Liberal Arts Dean’s Speaker Series brings prominent scholars, writers, and practitioners in the humanities, arts, and social sciences to Tulane University to foster an ongoing conversation about the vitality of the liberal arts in addressing topics that matter to society.
Many of the liberal arts disciplines have complicated relationships to structural racism, colonialism, and/or imperialism, which arguably are structured into the “rules” of the disciplines themselves. Scholars working in those disciplines, including those featured in the series, are working to uncover those histories in the effort of thinking about and staging work for the next generation(s) of scholars.
Each speaker will give a public talk; they will also meet in a smaller group (usually the next day) with faculty and students for a workshop on anti-racist research and scholarship.
Featuring Sarah J. Jackson, Presidential Associate Professor and co-director, Media, Inequality & Change Center, University of Pennsylvania.
