Teach-in: ENGAGING HUMAN DIFFERENCES
Start Date: 2/19/2015Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 2/19/2015End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description:
Ferguson, Staten Island/NYC, Paris. Philadelphia. In this time of intensifying and proliferating tensions regarding how the law and the police state engage human differences of race, religion, gender, sexuality, and class (amongst many others), the need to find language and spaces of dialogue have become more urgent. For this event, David
Kyuman Kim (Connecticut College scholar of race, religion, and public life) will lead a teach-in with the Swarthmore community taking up these issues, especially as they effect the stakeholders of Swarthmore. A successful teach-in will take the temperature of the constituents of Swarthmore (students, staff, faculty, and local
community) in regard to these tensions around race and the like, and build-up an organic dialogue that will serve as a catalyst for on-going conversations at Swarthmore and beyond.

David Kyuman Kim is Associate Professor of Religious Studies and a member of the Associated Faculty in the Program in American Studies at Connecticut College, where he was also serves as Chair of the Department of Religious Studies. From 2006-2009, Kim served as the Inaugural Director of the College’s Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity. From 2009-2012, Kim was named as Senior Advisor at the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) where he continues to work as Editor-at-Large of The Immanent Frame, the SSRC’s blog on secularism, religion, and the public sphere. In spring 2009, he was the Inaugural Visiting Professor in the Humanities at Brown University, as well as the Acting Program Director of the SSRC’s Program in the Religion and the Public Sphere.
