 2014 Critical Diversity Studies Forum- DIS/PLACEMENTS

Friday, September 12, 12:45 - 4:45 pm - McLaren Complex

The 4th Annual USF Critical Diversity Forum, “DIS/PLACEMENTS" coincides with the anniversaries of several events which activated seismic shifts in US society: the centenary of the beginning of World War I, the 50th anniversary of the official commencement of US military involvement in Vietnam, and the 50th anniversary of the US Civil Rights Act and our War on Poverty.These anniversaries offer us an occasion to consider and explore how recent social events — i.e., President Obama’s June 2014 vow to employ executive authority to expedite immigration reform, the Isla Vista killings in May 2014 and the anti-misogyny campaigns this tragedy inspired, and the concurrent “urban renewal” and anti-gentrification movements produced by the Northern California technology boom — are simultaneously stirring up the social order, displacing populations.
