Ethnic Studies Faculty on "Cancel Culture" in Higher Ed

CLASS CANCELLED? Ethnic Studies Faculty on "Cancel Culture" in Higher Ed

GWB 2.206

Navigating "cancel culture" is one thing on Twitter, but proves to be even more treacherous terrain in the college classroom, for both students and faculty.

We often don't hear from faculty on the matter until they're in defense mode, but they know, more than most, that it's a reality of academic life in 2020 that's impossible to ignore, whether you've been cancelled or not. So how exactly do professors navigate around (or through) "cancel culture?"

We'll hear straight from the source, as a panel of faculty from both Latino Studies and Black Studies weigh in on the topic, and additionally consider the role ethnic studies plays and the responsibility we have to control it.
