PATRICIA MATTHEW: DIVERSITY IN THE PUBLIC ARENA: THE SCHOLAR AS ACTIVIST
September 19, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Patricia Matthew, Associate Professor of English at Montclair State University, will deliver a lecture about the necessity for deep investment in diversity and inclusion as part of all university ecosystems. Her talk is driven by her most recent publication, a collection of essays entitled Written/Unwritten: Diversity and the Hidden Truths of Tenure (UNC Press, 2016). Matthew has been interviewing and reading about faculty of color targeted by extremists and will discuss the stakes for the work that colleges and universities are doing right now.
