Shapeshifting: Reading and Writing the Mixed Race Experience

All Levels | As multiracial people, it is often hard to know where we belong. In conversations around race, our perspectives often get overlooked or we may feel pressure to simplify our experiences. This class will hold space for mixed-race people to share freely about our evolving, complex identities. Each week, we will read and discuss a selection of essays/memoirs, and freewrite from prompts that explore topics like coming of age, messages we learned about race, whiteness, colorism, privilege, silence, and nonbinary thinking.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
