Spring 2022 Workshop Series: How to be an anti-racist researcher

Sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development

Institutions of higher education like Mason and related professional organizations (e.g., American Psychological Association) have acknowledged their roles in perpetuating BIPOC harms (e.g., Enslaved Children of Mason Project, Mason Land Acknowledgment) and have called for reparative structural change. This workshop series will introduce a new way of producing knowledge - new tools - that center an explicitly anti-racist and decolonizing stance, which can allow us to expose, challenge, and potentially repair some of the harms previously committed by and in the name of "research".

What is anti-racist research? – February 2, 1-3pm

Taking concrete steps as an anti-racist researcher – February 23, 1-3pm

Navigating constraints and locating possibilities – March 23, 1-3pm

All workshops will be held on Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to those who have registered at least 24 hours before each workshop.

Pre-registration is required, and attendance at all three workshops is strongly encouraged, as we seek to build a cohort of learners who will support each other and as each workshop will build on the previous one.
