Race Talks

The College of Liberal Arts at Texas A&M University is pleased to present Race Talks: An Interdisciplinary Virtual Colloquium Series that aims to invigorate campus-wide conversation about anti-racist advocacy through pedagogy, performance, and research. Made possible by an Advance Climate Together grant, Race Talks will launch this Spring semester bringing together emerging and established BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) scholars, managers, art administrators, producers, film makers, musicians, dancers, choreographers, visual artists, faculty, and students.

The series is coordinated across six participating university units (Africana Studies, the Dance Program, Film Studies, Latino/a and Mexican American Studies, Performance Studies, and Religious Studies) and offers a diverse and multidisciplinary program of events including keynote speakers, lecturers, interviews, workshops, panels, and student presentations.

For questions, please contact Race Talks coordinator Dr. Mariana Gariazzo at
