From a white position, good intentions are never enough to have an anti-racist stance. This posture requires ongoing self-criticism and reflection. In the Critical Whiteness workshop, we will look at the possibilities that a white position offers for anti-racist action in the context of our teaching. In doing so, we will address pitfalls and challenges as well as opportunities and possibilities. We will also question the meaning of our emotional experiences, and will have space to reflect on felt insecurities.
