The Cost of Hate Symposium, Part 1: Anti-racism
What is the cost of hatred? Many of us are able to talk about what is good about diversity, and how we need to work toward a fairer, more representative society that offers more equitable access of social goods to all. Despite this commitment, we have experienced multiple expressions of hatred at UT and in the Knoxville community, which have forced us to address hatred as it impacts in our community. During this three-part discussion series, we will examine the cost to society of group-focused hatred.
In part one, we focus on anti-racism. Recent protests have highlighted systemic racism, but racism has defined our nation’s history since its beginning. How can we understand the ongoing costs that racial oppression levels on our society? Jon Shefner, UT professor of sociology, will moderate a panel discussion with fellow UT faculty and City Councilwoman Amelia Parker.
Registration is required. Once registered, you will receive information about how to join the webinar.
