Mixed Roots Stories Live Performance event Nov 15, 2014
"Global Mixed Race," the 3rd biennial Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference, was held at DePaul University in Chicago Nov 13-15, 2014.
Master of Arts in critical ethnic studies examines the systematic
marginalization of racial minorities in the urban United States and the
global implication of these structures. Students study how racialized
groups use art, culture, political organization and other forms of
social citizenship to respond to and counter these forces.
Pursue graduate work in Critical Mixed Race Studies under DePaul University’s new MA in Critical Ethnic Studies. DePaul is currently accepting applications for the first cohort of graduate students to begin in Fall of 2015.
The program takes an interdisciplinary approach – the only one of its kind in the U.S. – in which students take courses across a number of academic departments. Furthermore, DePaul’s Chicago location allows students to take advantage of the city’s rich resources for research and collaboration with non-profit organizations, presenting opportunity to develop community engaged scholarship. Our graduates leave with a broad-based, highly relevant education making them competitive candidates for careers in social justice advocacy, community-based organizing, urban planning, and higher education.Contact Camilla Fojas for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org
