2019-2020 Reading Race Network
The Reading Race Network consists of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates who are conceptualizing and building a website-based digital toolkit designed to promote racial literacy through critical engagement with multicultural literature. The project aims to help teachers and students uncover, examine, and question race and power in the classroom in both interesting and effective ways. Drawing on the interdisciplinary research about race and ethnicity that has emerged from the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE), the toolkit builds on the basic premise that race is not a thing that people have or are, but rather actions that people do as they interact with one another and the world. When it is completed, the toolkit will be hosted by Stanford SPARQ.
