The University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, WA) will host a conference on Race and Pedagogy keynoted by Prof. Cornel West on Sept. 14-16, 2006. The conference will bring together scholars, teachers, and students to discuss the pedagogical implications of race in higher education, particularly but not exclusively in institutions and programs oriented towards a liberal education in the arts and sciences. Refining, extending, and questioning our understanding of the pedagogical implications of race is critical if we are to improve the racial-cultural experiences of all our students and prepare our students for citizenship and leadership in a diverse world where race continues to matter. The conference planning committee encourages teachers, scholars, and students across disciplines (e.g. humanities, social sciences, physical sciences) with an interest in race and pedagogy to examine the three themes which will guide the conference: 1) race, knowledge, and disciplinarity; 2) racial dynamics and racial performances in the classroom (and beyond); 3) race, pedagogy, and community.
