Welcome back for another school year, R&E-ers!
As you may have noticed over the last few years, we’ve been working around themes to guide our monthly meetings. This academic year, we’re focusing on Race, Health and Healthcare.
Our first fall meeting will be Friday September 9th from 3PM to 5PM, in CLA 2.606 (Normandy Seminar Room). There will be two readings we will discuss to help introduce our subject for the year, so please come prepared to discuss them and share your vision for the rest of the semester.
The readings are the following:
- Bliss, Catherine. 2012. “Chapter 5: Everyday Race-Positive” in Race Decoded: The Genomic Fight for Racial Justice. Stanford University Press.
- Goodnough, Abby. 2016. “Finding good pain treatment is hard. If you’re not white, it’s even harder.” The New York Times.
Please mark the following dates for our subsequent fall meetings: October 14th, November 11th, and December 2nd from 3PM to 5PM (all in CLA 2.606). Also, contact Anima Adjepong, Kathy Hill, or Shantel Buggs for a PDF of the Bliss chapter and join our email list here!
