Race, Racism and Racial Equity Symposium (R3): “Cultural Industry, Techno-capitalism, and Labor: The Mediated Exploitation of Black and Brown Bodies”
November 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Race, Racism and Racial Equity (R3) Symposium, hosted by the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion, is a series of virtual events that brings together scholars and researchers from across campus to share their work with Carolina and the broader community.
We will provide context on the state of race at UNC and in the U.S., complementing the work of the Chancellor’s Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward. R3 will also highlight the stellar and innovative work of our graduate researchers. R3 is co-hosted by the University Office for Diversity and Inclusion, the Jordan Institute for Families and Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, UNC School of Social Work.
The second in the R3 series, “Cultural Industry, Techno-capitalism, and Labor: The Mediated Exploitation of Black and Brown Bodies,” will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 1–2:30 p.m. Scholars from across UNC, including Business and Communications, will share their work addressing issues of language, representation, cultural appropriation, and decontextualization of Black and Brown labor as it appears through a variety of media.
