"Talking about Race and Racism in Sport: An Introduction to Difficult Racial Conversations"

Douglas Hartmann is a Professor and Chair of Sociology at the University of Minnesota. He is the author of numerous publications on racism, ethnicity, and diversity, and an expert on whiteness in both the sportsworld and contemporary American culture. His talk will provide an introduction to various dimensions of race and racism that can be found in sports culture, drawing on his own studies of public opinion and mass media. Hartmann will also suggest the role that different conceptions of whiteness can play in the reproduction or contestation of racial inequalities in the United States today.

This event is co-sponsored with Student Athlete Volunteer Educators (SAVE)
