NOTE: This lecture has reached capacity. As a courtesy, the Graduate School will offer standby seating on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 6:45 pm in Kane Hall. If you are registered for this lecture, please plan on arriving by 7:15 pm to claim your seats. Any seats not taken by that time will be offered to our guests in the standby line.
Peggy McIntosh will talk about how she came to see privilege systems. She knew that human beings can be pushed down below a hypothetical line of social justice through oppression of many kinds. Her own work since 1988 has focused on seeing the many ways in which people are pushed up above the hypothetical line of social justice, through no virtue of their own. McIntosh will facilitate reflections on ways in which individuals and organizations can use their unearned advantages to weaken privilege systems. The session will identify at least 16 individual and collective actions that can lead to redistributions of unearned power.

About Peggy McIntosh
Peggy McIntosh, Ph.D., former associate director of the Wellesley Centers for Women, is also the founder and now Senior Associate of the National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum (Seeking Educational Equity & Diversity). SEED helps teachers and community members create their own local, year-long, peer-led seminars in which participants use their own experiences and those of their students, children, and colleagues to widen and deepen school and college curricula and make communities and workplaces more inclusive.
Dr. McIntosh directs the Gender, Race, and Inclusive Education Project, which provides workshops on privilege systems, feelings of fraudulence, and diversifying workplaces, curricula, and teaching methods.
