Can We Really Talk? Session 1: Teaching about Religion, Race and Politics Through the Lens of the Media (Hosted in person) In-Person

With the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, student protests, a polarizing Presidential election and the ever-present volatility of race, how these topics are covered in the media remains one of the most important factors that shape how we teach a myriad of subjects on college campuses across the country. This session will explore how to acknowledge, teach and talk about religion, race and politics with students (including our own understanding of these sensitive issues). Additionally, we will discuss how media influences the examples and perspectives students bring to class and consider the challenges and benefits it presents when navigating such topics.

Guest Facilitator: David W. Brown, Assistant Dean, Klein College of Media and Communication

The Can We Really Talk? Series is co-sponsored with the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL).
