Julie Laible Lecture Series: Dr. Cheryl E. Matias

Wednesday, Oct. 20 | 5 p.m. | 118 Graves Hall and Zoom

The College of Education continues its Julie Laible Lecture Series by featuring Dr. Cheryl E. Matias, whose research focuses on race and ethnic studies in education with a theoretical focus on critical race theory, critical whiteness studies, critical pedagogy and feminism of color. Specifically, she uses a feminist of color approach to deconstruct the emotionality of whiteness in urban teacher education and how it impacts urban education. She will present “Hypermania, Racially Just Teaching, and the Ever-Present Emotionalities of Whiteness: How Racialized Emotions Intoxicate Us All” at the 2021 Julie Laible Lecture on Anti-Racist Scholarship, Education and Social Activism. Registration is required.
