Critical race perspectives: an introduction
What in fact are critical race perspectives? How do researchers use them in their work, and for what purposes? How do these perspectives influence various academic fields?
This zoom webinar will explore these questions and more. Most generally, critical race perspectives allow us to study and transform the relationships between race, racism and power as they operate in many aspects of life, both in the present and historically. Our panelists will address how critical race perspectives shape their own work and the academic world more broadly across a variety of academic fields, as well as across various national contexts, including South Africa, USA and Norway. After each panelist gives a brief introduction to their work, we will engage in a panel discussion followed by audience questions and answers.
More information about the speakers will follow.
This webinar will be held in English. It is free and open to everyone, but we especially encourage students to join. The panel is co-hosted by ILOS (Institute for Literature, Area Studies and European Languages, University of Oslo) and the African Student Association (University of Oslo.)
