Historians in the Line of Fire: Intersections of DEI Work & Reality on Campuses
Solicited by the OAH Committee on the Status of African American, Latino/a, Asian American, and Native American (ALANA) Historians and ALANA Histories
Saturday, April 1, 2023, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Type: Roundtable Discussion
Tags: Professional Development
This roundtable seeks to serve ALANA members in the crosshairs of legislative and political attack on their research and teaching. Oftentimes this occurs while they are simultaneously called upon to conduct and represent diversity and inclusion work on campuses. There have been casualties, the most extreme include tenure denial, hate crimes, and threats in various forms. Many scholars and teachers are unable to do their work and/or teach in ALANA fields/topics. This space allows for a discussion of the current situation and hopefully will yield a community of support, ideas, and perhaps actionable resolve.
