University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

STARS Event: Dr. Karla Jessen Williamson

Illuminating the Crosscurrents of Racism and Sexism:
A Practice-Based Approach to Transforming Multiple Oppressions
Thursday, Nov. 22nd
4:00 - 5:30
Education Rm 2001
The Student Teachers’ Anti-Racism Society (STARS) warmly invites you to join special guest Dr. Karla Jessen Williamson in examining the relationship between the lived realities of racism and sexism in Canadian society. While each subject merits in-depth and careful examination, engaging the two forms of violence concurrently bears new understandings about the multiple and shifting spaces in which these forms of violence are played out. The event will include two objectives: the first is to bring into focus the ways racism and sexism are leveled against Women of Color in Canadian society, and the second is to collaboratively engage a selection of resources that may be used by practitioners to address racism and sexism in the classroom. All are welcome to this event. We would greatly appreciate it if you would be willing to share this invitation among your email networks. Refreshments will be provided.
