Please join us for this installment in the Critical University Studies Speaker Series: Dr. Jalil Bishop, "A Place to Be Human." The Critical University Studies (CUS) working group convenes and cultivates a critical scholarly community that contends with issues of power, race, and gender in higher education.
For this talk, Dr. Bishop will present on his latest research project which highlights how schools and colleges create precocity in Black communities. His findings show how underdevelopment in Black neighborhoods and unequal opportunity in schools and colleges are interlocked. He will focus on a tradition in Black communities of Black peacemaking and lifetaking to highlight how Black people navigate, contest, and imagine beyond geographic and educational inequality.
