CRG Working Group Critical University Studies invites you to the first installment of the 2019-2020 Critical University Studies Speaker Series, featuring Dr. Jalil Bishop. Dr. Bishop will present on his latest research project which highlights how schools and colleges create precarity in Black communities. His findings show how underdevelopment in Black neighborhoods and unequal opportunity in schools and colleges are interlocked. He will focus on a tradition in Black communities of Black placemaking and lifemaking to highlight how Black people navigate, contest, and imagine beyond geographic and educational inequality.
