Transforming the Academy: Intersectionality and Change in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies

This is a past event.

Academic institutions are shaped by and reproduce the very systems of social inequality that much of the research produced at these institutions seeks to deconstruct. Join us to explore why there is a need to move beyond recruiting and hiring diverse faculty to transforming dominant ideologies and deep-rooted social structures in academic culture.

MODERATOR:
Sibelan Forrester, Swarthmore College

PRESENTERS:
Carina Karapetian Georgi, Antelope Valley College
Joseph Lenkart, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
Pawel Lewicki, Europa University, Viadrina
Olga Povoroznyuk, University of Vienna

REGISTER IN ADVANCE: https://www.ucis.pitt.edu/crees/intersectionality-in-focus-spring-2022

This session is part of the series "Intersectionality in Focus: From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice, and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies." Class, ethnicity and race, dis/ability, gender and sexuality, and other identity markers interweave to produce inequality differently in Eastern Europe and Eurasia than in the Americas or Western Europe. Yet, it is these very differences that provide a rich ground for intellectual conversations in our field.
