Faculty Contributions Sought for Bibliography and Reading Group

Last year, the Association of Critical Race Art History (ACRAH) created an online, English-language bibliographic resource for people investigating issues of race, ethnicity, art, and visual culture. The bibliographies are available online at https://acrah.org/bibliographies/. As they are being updated fairly regularly, we welcome recommendations for inclusion in the bibliographies (please see the form on the website).

In conjunction with the launch of this resource, a series of informal reading groups was formed in New York, the Bay Area, Washington DC, and Boston, and beginning this fall there will now be a Providence and Rhode Island–area reading group. This primary purpose of these groups is to give area scholars, artists, and community members an opportunity to discuss key texts pertaining to race, racialization, and visuality. They also serve as a venue to discuss issues of pedagogy and activism in and out of the classroom, with the exact agenda, meeting times, and readings determined by each group. Further information is available at https://acrah.org/reading-groups/.

The RISD Community are invited to attend a meeting of the Providence reading group, which will be having its initial meeting the week of 9th October. Please, email Sean Nesselrode Moncada at snesselr@risd.edu for further details of readings, meeting time, and location, or with any questions you might have.
