Women of Color & The Academy: Exploring Race, Research, Representation, and Positionality

(2018-2019)

with Ebony Perouse-Harvey, University of Michigan School of Education

Women of Color & The Academy: Exploring Race, Research, Representation, and Positionality is a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop.

This interdisciplinary workshop series at the University of Michigan brings together education scholars and practitioners to examine issues related to race, research, and representation. Participants of this group work in various fields that intersect with education. Our work across these fields provides us varying insights into the representation and positioning of women of color within and outside of the university.  This workshop has two primary objectives:

  1. To expand what is considered to be academic by exposing the larger community to works created by or featuring women of color

  2. To provide spaces where women of color can engage deeply with issues that impact them personally and professionally in a way that is responsive to their identities, time, and energies
