How do universities use investigations into the history of slavery to promote -- or avoid –conversations about race and inequality on campus. This conversation will be led by Professor Craig S. Wilder (History), the author of Ebony and Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities. This is the first in a series, The Examined University. To promote an open and informal dialogue, this in-person program is limited to 18 participants.
An ethical life begins with a clear-eyed look at ourselves. Our institutions – the places and communities that we call home – also benefit from careful consideration. This series introduces key questions about the choices and values that shape MIT. How can understanding our Institute’s historic ties and current relationships help us think about its future? To promote an open and informal dialogue, this in-person program is limited to 18 participants. EACH SESSION REQUIRES REGISTRATION and MIT AFFILIATION.
