Race Place Being

Race • Place • Being is a semester-long series of performances, speakers, exhibitions, film screenings and other activities that focuses on topics of race and identity within local, national and global contexts and across different eras, times and locations. The purpose of the series is to provide the campus and broader community with opportunities to engage in purposeful dialogue about these topics and to understand the relevance of these issues in the 21st century.  

The exhibitions and events in the series will take place in a number of venues on campus and throughout Central New York -- at SUNY Oswego's Metro Center in downtown Syracuse, ArtRage Gallery and Syracuse Stage in Syracuse. Some performances, film screenings and exhibitions will call attention to specific events of the past -- such as resistances to apartheid in South Africa and the Civil Rights protest marches in the United States in Selma, Alabama and elsewhere -- to invite conversations about the lessons of history and their importance today in light of the current cultural climate both here and abroad. (See our forthcoming calendar of events for details.)

We encourage faculty, staff, students, alumni and the greater community to participate in these events, performances, exhibitions and timely conversations on race, place and being.

Please contact amy.bartell@oswego.edu or patricia.clark@oswego.edu to be included in the calendar and/or add your class or organization to the public conversations.Calendar Co-Coordinators: Patricia Clark, patricia.clark@oswego.edu and Amy E. Bartell,  amy.bartell@oswego.edu.
