The University of Maryland Center for Literary and Comparative Studies is sponsoring a year-long linked series of events, "Antiracism: Research • Teaching • Public Engagement," that support and act upon the statements of solidarity for Black Lives Matter issued by the Department, College, and University. Drawing upon the flexibility of the virtual environment—all of our programming in AY 20-21 will be virtual—we are committed to supporting the work of emerging, early-, and mid-career scholars and teachers, with a particular emphasis on welcoming BIPOC and BAME scholars and teachers in the US and abroad. We envisage that these events will draw audiences from the University of Maryland and beyond. Our intention is to contribute to the development of antiracist scholarship and pedagogy, and to offer public engagement with our various communities beyond campus in the service of promoting antiracism in all its forms. We are also committed to making these events accessible.
The Antiracism series is co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the Graduate School's Office of Graduate Diversity and Inclusion. This event is supported by the Stringer Foundation and co-sponsored by The Long 18th Lecture Series.
For more information about the series, including upcoming events, please visit our site.
