  5. Undoing Racism Workshop Meeting

    September 30, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.

    This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.

    The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.

    Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from 12-2pm (with some exceptions). All members of our school community are invited to attend.

    A Zoom link will be sent out the day of the event to all those who RSVP.

  9. Realm of the Dead Realm of the Dead

    October 4, 2021 - 8:30am to October 17, 2021 4:30pm

    Realm of the Dead is an installation/performance, freely adapted from Rogério Pinto’s award-winning play, Marília, about his sister who died in an accident in the street outside the family home when she was three years old and he just tenth months. Comprising a solo performance and an installation that serves as a set for that performance, Realm of the Dead is grounded in the work of the Brazilian theater artist Augusto Boal and in autoethnographic social work research and practice. These methodologies are recommended as vehicles for critical reflection, self-healing, personal growth, and advocacy.

    The Realm of the Dead installation comprises more than thirty suitcases, each reflecting an aspect of Pinto’s multiple physical and spiritual journeys and representing the cemetery where Marília is buried. The performance, directed by Erwin Maas, also includes autobiographical material and explorations of ethnicity, race, gender, class, and other identities. The autoethnographic content of the piece has been reformatted into workshops for students at the University of Michigan’s School of Social Work.

    The Installation will be on view in the Lower Level Atrium from Sunday October 4 - Sunday October 17.

    The Performances will occur on Thursday, September 30, 4:30 & 7pm & Friday, October 1, 7pm. Ticket information coming soon.
