The History of Omission in White Supremacy

Omission: erasure, exclusion, elimination, repudiation. For centuries, white supremacy has thrived on overt and implicit omission, warping our view of the past, present, and future. Join Naming Educational Whiteness (NEW) for our final roundtable of the semester: a virtual panel discussion about the history of omission of people of color in our disciplines and on the Champlain College campus. Special Collections Director Erica Donnis will discuss the cultural narrative of Samuel de Champlain’s association with the Lake Champlain region. Assistant Professor Faith Yacubian will discuss the professoriate as a colonialist construct. Jessa Karki, Director of the Office of International Student Services, will discuss the U.S. federal immigration system and its move to militarism and overt preference towards white Europeans during the Trump Administration. This program is open to all Champlain community members.
