Bio-Diversity Brown Bags
Courageous Conversations: Placing the dominant culture in context
Culture is often described as a set of norms so common that we take it for granted. When we think about multicultural diversity, we focus on the cultures of racial and ethnic groups different from the dominant culture. How do we understand Euro-American culture? How can the CBS community's work on perception and identity with Wing Young Huie inform our understanding? This is part of a Bio-Diversity Brown Bag Lunch series offered by the College of Biological Sciences. This event will also include the viewing of some photos taken by local photographer Wing Young Huie around identity and perception to consider connections.
