Master Class on 'Race and Otherness' (7 - 8 March 2012) - Keynote Speaker, Prof. Bill E. Lawson, University of Memphis
Fri, 17 Feb 2012
This workshop centres on articulations of race and racism in policy and cultural contexts. Constructions, representations and applications of race will be explored from a variety of critical perspectives, with particular emphasis on the ways in which race has been deployed to construct the different ‘other’ in both Irish and international contexts. The workshop will be guided by specialists from the fields of philosophy, education, social policy, and film studies. A keynote lecture will be delivered by a guest expert, Professor Bill E. Lawson, who has published widely on the topic of race including a number of books which explore the life and work of Frederick Douglass. Professor Lawson, distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Memphis is visiting UCC under the Fullbright Inter-Country exchange. The master class will be held on two consecutive days and consists of a keynote lecture on the Wednesday evening and a full-day workshop on the following day.
