Dickinson will host a panel of experts to discuss the racism that exists in the Americas despite the growth of multiracial populations. The talk will happen Wednesday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium.
Panelists will discuss the realities of racial politics in the Americas, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean, where the existence of multiracial majorities does not necessarily mean the end of racial discrimination. The experts will also address how the U.S. can learn from existing racial inequalities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Santiago Anria, assistant professor of political science and Latin American studies at Dickinson, will serve as moderator. His research focuses on social movements, political parties, and democracy in Latin America.
The event is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the departments of English; American studies; Latin American, Latino & Caribbean studies; political science; and the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Inclusivity.
