    Title: Counternarratives on the Racial Realities of Working in Predominantly White Spaces: A Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Event


    In this session UConn Faculty and Staff will share counternarratives on their individual and collective lived experiences both in and outside of the classroom related to the impact of race in higher education.

    According to Lee Anne Bell (2003), counternarratives can help us learn about race and racism by helping us become more conscious of historical and current realities by interrupting common notions that prevent movement toward democratic and inclusive communities.  Specifically, she argues that counternarratives can serve as a tool for developing a more critical race consciousness about social relations in historically white institutions (HWIs).
