Professional Development opportunity for faculty.


Moderator: James Mason (Associate Provost and Dean of Faculty at MassArt)
Panelist(s): Judith Anderson (Professor of Industrial Design at MassArt), Dr. Brent Smith (Interim Dean and Professor of Marketing in our School of Communication at Emerson), Ron Savage (Executive Director of Berklee College of Music)

In this era when calls for anti-racist approaches and the rejection of anti-Blackness are reverberating in both US American society and across academia, it is critical that both institutions and professors take concrete steps to respond meaningfully. In this session, Black professors at multiple intersections of identity will discuss how their pedagogy, creative works and scholarship function as embodiments of the histories, cultures and communities racism and colonialism endeavored to silence, demean and destroy. They will also share how Arts and Communications programs in Predominantly White Institutions can intentionally and ethically make structural and pedagogical decisions that not only make space for but advance anti-racism.


ProArts members are also welcome to attend the Teach-In keynote address as well as a performance with Charles Reese the night before. Details are included on the attached PDF poster. In order to participate, consortium members will need to register at the links below:
