The Institutional as Usual: Diversity, Utility, and the University

  • October 20, 2017 • 3 PM – 4 PM
  • Hillman Hall, Clark-Fox Forum

James E. McLeod Memorial Lecture on Higher Education

The feminist writer and scholar Sara Ahmed conducts research at the intersection of feminist, queer and race studies, exploring how bodies and worlds take shape, and how power is secured and challenged in daily life as well as in institutional cultures.

For this presentation, Ahmed will demonstrate how and why diversity is “in use” as a word and as a concept to help understand how universities are shaped by patterns of use that often go unnoticed.
