Discussion of Claudia Rankine's book Citizen: An American Lyric

Sun, Oct 25th and Nov 1st from 1 - 3pm
Registration required. Register here.

Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV-everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named "post-race" society.

Facilitator: Janet Winston, Professor of English and Critical Race, Gender and Sexuality Studies at HSU, will facilitate a discussion with readers of this book of prose poetry about America's racial violence against its Black citizens, including seemingly isolated racial microaggressions, and about American's history of whiteness and white supremacy.

Update on current projects from the 
Altruistic Behavior Institute and Sam Oliner's new book:  What Kind of Future Will Our Children Inherit?
Thursday, November 12, 2020, 7:00pm-8:00pm
 
Please join Ronnie Swartz, Director of HSU’s Altruistic Behavior Institute, for a collective conversation about the institute’s current projects, including Sam Oliner’s latest book, What Kind of Future Will Our Children Inherit? Planned for publication in Fall 2020, Sam’s new book considers the direction our world is going in and concentrates on areas of the greatest concern regarding our future as a species such as war, violence, hatred, genocide, the status of women, families, climate change, heroic acts, love, ecumenism, apology, forgiveness, and suffering. A copy of Chapter 1 is included. Ronnie also invites discussion about other institute initiatives like “We Live Here,” which focuses on local stories of stress, resilience, and inclusion; naloxone training and distribution to reduce opioid overdoses; and Evidence-Based Panhandling which aims to improve community safety, reduce conflict with law enforcement, and increase panhandling returns.
 
Meeting ID: 862 2142 0520
Here is chapter 1 of Mr. Oliner's book: What Kind of Future Will Our Children Inherit?
