  Brownbag Lectures: Are We So Different? Teaching About "Race" in an Anthropology Class   

Brownbag Lectures: Are We So Different? Teaching About "Race" in an Anthropology Class

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, May 07, 2014, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Presented by
Dr. Lynn Fisher
Adjunct Research Associate, Anthropology, Illinois State Museum
Associate Professor, Sociology/Anthropology Department
University of Illinois at Springfield

This presentation discusses insights from two decades of teaching about misconceptions associated with "race" in college anthropology courses. Dr. Fisher draws on the long history of anthropological critiques of racialized biology and the recent educational program of the American Anthropological Association ("RACE - Are We So Different?") to challenge some persistent ideas about human variation.
