Monday, May 16, 12:45-2:00pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time

With support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences International Keynote Speaker Support Fund

Speaker: Dr. D-L Stewart, Morgridge College of Education, University of Denver

A leading researcher, practitioner, and activist-scholar dedicated to championing social justice and transforming the culture and climate of campuses and institutions of higher education, D-L Stewart has been an influential voice shaping the terms of debate throughout North America, including the Federation’s own Igniting Change report, which was so widely adopted last year as a call-to-action. Dr. Stewart’s keynote address will build on the sustained EDID conversations of both the Federation and the CSSHE and be of interest to those throughout the HSS and education communities. Drawing on Dr. Stewart’s established and ranging expertise, this presentation will critically examine institutional norms, and focus on moving beyond what ze refers to as “the language of appeasement” and rhetorical “Kool Aid” approaches to diversity and inclusion. The emphasis will instead be placed on disrupting the status quo and highlighting conscious pathways that lead to transformative action, equity and justice on our campuses.
