Spanish So White – Workshop

Monday, September 11, 2023

UTSA Main Campus
COLFA Student Success Center (MH 376)

Explicit discussions of race & racial identity have traditionally been omitted from Spanish language education in the US—especially in curricula designed for imagined ‘native’ speakers of English. Consequences of this deracialization of Spanish language learning include the perpetuation of institutional racism & missed opportunities to build productive conversations about the ways race & power are enacted through language.

Join Dr. Adam Schwartz (Oregon State University) as he facilitates a workshop based on his book, Spanish So White: Conversations on the Inconvenient Racism of a ‘Foreign’ Language Education.

This is an in-person event. Light refreshments will be provided.

This event is sponsored by the College of Liberal and Fine Arts at The University of Texas at San Antonio
