Special Convo discussion series Fall 2020

Please join us for a series of readings and discussions on the history of Oregon and the place of Willamette in that history jointly hosted by the FLC on Navigating Indigenous History in our Teaching (2018-2020) and the Fall 2020 Convocation class.

These discussions will be based on material from the Winter 2019 issue of the Oregon Historical Quarterly; this special issue - entitled “White Supremacy and Resistance” - contains a series of articles addressing the early history of the region. These articles- taken together- provide an excellent introduction to the history of settler colonialism and white supremacy in Oregon and its impact on the Indigenous and African American populations.

 Each session will feature a brief author introduction to the material, communally generated questions for discussion, a facilitated discussion, and a sharing of ideas for institutional change.
