This discussion series provides students with an opportunity to think about the most recent wave of brutal police violence in the United States in a global perspective. Participants will do up to an hour of reading, viewing, or listening in advance of each conversation; there will be no structured presentations. The goal is for students who complete the series to be able to explain how racialized and militarized policing in the USA shape and are shaped by historical and contemporary global connections and processes.
Participants will receive links to the readings, videos, or audio clips prior to each session.
