New Faculty Working Group on Anti-Racism and Action

Call for Participants

The Dresher Center for the Humanities, the Center for Social Science Scholarship, the Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts, and the Imaging Research Center invite participants to join our new Faculty Working Group: Anti-Racism and Action. This new group builds on the enthusiastic response to our Anti-Racism and Action series of drop-in sessions in summer/fall 2020 and seeks to promote new coalitions, conversations, and creative work surrounding anti-racism in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.  The Faculty Working Group is envisioned as a collaborative, interdisciplinary community of scholars that will support this work and spur research and teaching activity focused on anti-racism. The group will meet regularly to read, discuss, listen to experts, and/or plan research and activism, as the members may decide. Funds up to $1,000 annually will be allocated to host speakers, explore technologies, create new resources or materials, or other similar activities. We welcome faculty from any UMBC department, other area colleges and universities, as well as advanced UMBC graduate students.

To apply, complete the Anti-Racism and Action Faculty Working Groups Application Form HERE by December 15. Those who would be willing to serve as a co-leader of the group are encouraged to note that on the form.
