In a sense, Belinda Robnett has been preparing for this job most of her life.
With those ideals front and center, Robnett has launched one of her first big initiatives, “Anti-Blackness: Difficult Dialogues.” The yearlong lecture series is meant to highlight the excellence of African American scholars throughout the U.S., and to provide knowledge and assistance with the difficult dialogues around racial justice.
Viewers with UCSB or UC Irvine email addresses can pre-register for the lecture here; a Zoom link will be provided prior to the event.
Within the academy, it is our responsibility to educate our community and the larger society about systemic and institutional inequities and exclusion.
All members of UCSB must be proactive and work against injustice.”This series is co-sponsored by the UC Irvine School of Social Sciences, UCI School of Engineering, UCI School of Humanities, UCI Donald Bren School of Information & Computing Sciences, and UCI Office of Inclusive Excellence.
