Wednesday, February 3, 2021 Dr. Nolan Cabrera, University of Arizona
At our inaugural social justice speaker series event, Dr. Nolan Cabrera, an associate professor at the University of Arizona, presented, “White Immunity: Working Through the Pedagogical Pitfalls of Privilege.” The speaker series is supported by Dean Lise Youngblade and organized by the college’s Diversity and Equity Advisory Committee.
Cabrera’s talk explores the historical development of whiteness and shows how white advantage developed through systemic racism to which white people were socially inoculated. This lecture links the history of racial oppression to contemporary times and helps work through some of the pitfalls of “privilege” such as, “How can white kids from Appalachia be ‘privileged?’”
The recorded session is available to all CSU faculty, staff, and students for educational purposes. Please first sign in to Office365 in order to access the recording.
