Ending Stereotypes on The College Campus – An Unending Journey

September 26, 2019 @ 1:00 pm

Ending Stereotypes on The College Campus – An Unending Journey 1

The Humanities Department cordially invites you to September’s Works-in-the-Works event

 

A talk by Prof. Zheng Zhu

 

Ending Stereotypes on The College Campus – An Unending Journey

This talk will examine negative perceptions of Latinx people and cultures in U.S. academic institutions and the response to these harmful biases in the play Las Memorias, written by John Fraire and directed by Mary Trotter. The play stages everyday students’ struggles with negative cultural and ethnic stereotypes. Grounded in theories of stereotype threat and methods of neutralizing stereotypes, this talk will investigate the ways in which artistic interventions can combat prejudice at college campuses.

 

1:00pm, Thursday September 26, 2019 in Room L631

Faculty, staff, and students are invited. Refreshments served.
