Watch What is at Stake for Racial Justice in 2016

Video from Bannan Institute Panel

On October 5, I had the opportunity to speak with a Bannan Institute faculty collaborative on a roundtable panel, addressing the question of 'what is at stake for racial justice in 2016?' With the presidential election next month, the question particularly resonated in terms of the political rhetoric that has included xenophobia, among other demonstrative abuses of power through language. Faculty fellow Brett Solomon opened and facilitated the discussion, and Anthony Hazard and William O'Neil S.J. provided excellent insights into the nuances and complexities of the issue at this historical moment.

Faculty Collaborative for the Bannan Institute

Racial and Ethnic Justice and the Common Good

This fall I will be taking part in an interdisciplinary faculty seminar on racial and ethnic justice and the common good, contributing to the Jesuit, Catholic vocation at Santa Clara University as a transformative social force. In addition to contributing to the seminar with my own talk on January 23, 2017, I will also be taking part in a Bannan Institute podcast--Integral--which launches in Winter 2017. 

Below is a snapshot from the SCU website, which can be seen here.

Our first event will be the panel discussion "What is at Stake for Racial and Ethnic Justice in 2016? Stronger Together, Making America Great Again," where Brett Solomon, Anthony Hazard, William O'Neil, and I will discuss the implications of the coming election with regard to the topic of racial justice, within the context of our academic disciplines.
