The SLHS DEI group met on December 3, 2020. We worked with current and former students to further plan the exact logistics of the Current-Former Student Discussion Circle that is planned for January 2021 and will focus on navigating graduate school and the profession as a person of color and other marginalized groups. The DEI group also discussed progress on other goals, including the SLHS diversity plan (AY 20-21 goal 1) and the further expansion of the diversity, equity and inclusion portion of the SLHS website, including the student feedback portal (AY 20-21 goal 2).
The journal club discussed Language of Appeasement by Dafina-Lazarus Stewart (2017) and Principles of Antiracist Teaching & Reflection by the Multiculturalism, Race & Ethnicity in Classics Consortium (MRECC)). These articles examine best practices in teaching.
