University Forum: Does "Post-Race" Mean "After Race"?When: Mar. 31, 2014, 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium
Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "Does “Post-Race” Mean “After Race”? Transcending Blackness in the 21st Century United States," a talk by Ralina L. Joseph, associate professor, the departments of communication and African-American studies, University of Washington.
The term “post-race” has been bandied about in popular culture since the candidacy of President Obama in 2007. But what does this term really mean? Dr. Joseph examines popular U.S. conversations on “post-race”, particularly as it has to do with representations of African Americans in popular culture. Her examination of “post-race” will open up discussions as to how “race” continues to change in the 21st century United States.
This event is free and open to the public.
