It is important now, more than ever, for us to come together as a community. *Please note that we welcome and encourage participants to bring forth topics at these sessions. The format for each session allows for spontaneous conversation. We are developing topics and content in a fluid manner based on the voiced needs of our community and may make changes accordingly. https://ohei.med.umich.edu/events

Healing Identity Based Trauma
12:00pm, Off Campus Location
Many discussions under the umbrella of diversity, equity, and inclusion focus on what we can do moving forward, without holding sufficient space to deal with the wounds and potential trauma that inequality, oppression, and marginalization can cause. In the belief that healing is a form of social justice, this session focuses on strategies individuals and communities can use to heal from identity-based trauma. This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.

Undermining Racial Justice: How One University Embraced Inclusion and Inequality
4:00pm, Off Campus Location
In Undermining Racial Justice, Matthew Johnson (Texas Tech University) contends that over the last sixty years, administrators on college campuses nationwide have responded to black campus activists by making racial inclusion and inequality compatible. Focusing on the University of Michigan, Johnson argues that U-M leaders incorporated black student dissent selectively into the institution's policies, practices, and values. This strategy was used to prevent activism from disrupting the institutional priorities that campus leaders deemed more important than racial justice. As Johnson illustrates, inclusion has always been a secondary priority, and, as a result, the policies of the late 1970s and 1980s ushered in a new and enduring era of racial retrenchment on campuses nationwide. Join the author for a discussion of Undermining Racial Justice: How One University Embraced Inclusion and Inequality. Angela Dillard (University of Michigan) will serve as interlocutor. Matthew Johnson is associate professor of history at Texas Tech University. He is currently an American Council of Learned Societies Fellow working on a book about the impact of urban campus police forces on Black communities and students. Angela Dillard is the Richard A. Meisler Collegiate Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, History, and in the Residential College. She specializes in American and African American intellectual history, particularly around issues of race, religion, and politics—on both the Left and the Right sides of the political spectrum—and maintains an active interest in urban studies. Free and open to the public. This is a remote event and will take place online via Zoom. Please register in advance here: https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_a90DMOeVRZy18VWjsPyc_A This event is presented by the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. It is made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
