How does racism take place in the academy? How do structural and institutional structures support and maintain racist ideologies within higher education? How might Geographers use their research and cartographies of struggle to dismantle these hierarchies?
In this panel, students, researchers, and faculty will discuss their personal and professional experiences with race. Also, the panel will explore the role that structural racism plays in recruiting and retaining students of color; how race impacts hiring practices and tenure promotion; and how race shapes the culture of academia in general.
We highly recommend that chairpersons, senior faculty, and graduate advisors any others concerned with issues of equity in the discipline of Geography.
