This interactive workshop is designed as a space for exploring identity concepts that may offer conceptual building blocks for antiracism, grounded in self-reflection. Through writing and somatic practices we will reflect on how our identities show up in our lives. This workshop is followed by “Deepening the Conversation: Reflective practice on your identity(ies) in the classroom” at 11:00 a.m., which is centered on selected readings by Beverly Daniel Tatum, Janet Helms, among others. Participants are encouraged to register for both the workshop and the related conversation, but it is not a requirement. Topics that may come up include: ● academic authority ● intersectionality ● imposter syndrome ● invisibility ● hypervisibility ● whiteness ● stereotype threat ● UConn demographic and climate survey data Register – https://fins.uconn.edu/secure_inst/workshops/workshop_view.php?ser=2013
