Marianne Modica, author of The R Word, will be chairing a session entitled, “Shifting Constructions of Race Among Children in Learning Spaces” in November during the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Montreal. The session is sponsored by the Council on Anthropology & Education. She and her team from Rutgers University will present and lead discussion on such subtopics as “Reading Race: Analysis of Preschool-Age Children Interpretations of Racialized Picturebooks,” “Fifth Grade Students Interrogate ‘Sameness’ Through the Lens of The Giver,” and “Multiculturalism’s Unruly Subjects: Undermining and Reimagining Racialized Grammar In School.”

The CAE seeks to “advance anti-oppressive, socially equitable, and racially just solutions to educational problems through research using anthropological perspectives, theories, methods, and findings.”
