Open to Public: No

Join us for a discussion on understanding racism, white supremacism, and anti-racism and how they impact higher education.

What exactly is an ‘Anti-racist’ campus? Dr. Rebecca Kennedy will engage participants in a discussion on understanding racism, white supremacism, and anti-racism, how they impact higher education and how anti-racist practices can help make our colleges and society more equitable. This event is exclusively available for members of the Denison community.

Rebecca Futo Kennedy, Ph.D., is an ancient historian and associate professor of classical studies, women’s & gender studies, and environmental studies at Denison. She teaches courses on the histories of ancient Greeks and Romans and their modern receptions. Her research focuses on the histories of immigration, race, and ethnicity, and their intersections with class and gender in legal, economic, and social contexts in Greco-Roman antiquity. She currently is writing a history of scientific forms of racism from antiquity to the present and on the use of ancient Greek and Roman ideas, art, and architecture in the promotion of modern white supremacism. In addition to teaching and scholarship, she also works as a public advocate for dismantling white supremacist connections to the classics and in higher education.

Attendees will be emailed a Zoom link the day before the event.
