Library DEI Committee Book Discussion Series, Fall 2018

 

-Sponsored by Committee on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, ISU Library

Overview

Özlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo are academic researchers and professors with deep expertise in critical multicultural and social justice education.  They are widely recognized as subject experts who have written extensively on DEI topics, social justice education, white fragility, and anti-racism training and practice.

In Fall 2018, the Library's Committee on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is reading and discussing Sensoy & DiAngelo's recent book, Is Everyone Really Equal (2017), now in its 2nd edition.  

The committee group meets twice a month, and each meeting reviews and discusses selected chapters. The topics to be covered include:

  • engaging constructively
  • ​critical thinking & critical theory
  • culture & socialization
  • prejudice, discrimination, oppression, and power
  • understanding privilege through ableism, sexism; the structural nature of oppression through racism
  • and more!

Each session will be a facilitated discussion of selected chapters, led by a member of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee.  Members should read our Ground Rules prior to the sessions.

This LibGuide provides information on the discussion series and Sensoy & DiAngelo's writings. Throughout the discussion series, participants can also help compile our #IsEveryoneReallyEqualSyllabus, an annotated bibliography of resources related to topics covered by the group.
