UMB Conversation on Structural Racism


Dear FSU Members,

The Sankofa Conversations Series on Structural Racism is taking place at UMass Boston during the Fall semester.  The first discussion – An Anti-Racism and Health-Promoting Campus Conversation -- takes place this Thursday (10/15) from 6:30 to 8:30pm.   The attached flyer outlines the rest of the Fall events.

Please register here for Thursday:

The Point: Surveillance States


In which we consider the matter of why UMB’s administration would choose to propose new contract language on “academic freedom” and what questions this raises about cultures of surveillance. 

The examination combines the techniques of an observing hierarchy and those of a normalizing judgement.
