10/08/08 Colloquium: Beyond Just Whiteness: Cultural Identity and European Americans

Janice Barbee, Director of European American Studies and Knowledge Production, Cultural Wellness Center
Sara Axtell, Community-Campus Health Liaison, University of Minnesota

Community organizers and scholars are recognizing that, while an analysis of whiteness is vital to racial justice work, it lacks the depth needed to sustain healthy cultural identity. This session will present a multi-layered model of European American cultural identity, and discuss the implications for health and justice work.

Join us on Wednesday October 8th, noon - 1pm at 278 McNeal Hall, St. Paul Campus
