    Title:Philosophy of Race & Racism: On the Concept of White Privilege
    Description:This class session asks: how can philosophical tools of reasoning and argument help better understand the concept of white privilege--and socio-political privilege more generally--as well as the often contentious public discourse around white privilege? We will draw on the classic paper by Peggy McIntosh "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack," recent 
    philosophical work on the notion of privilege, and our own experiences talking  about the idea of white privilege in everyday life.

    Name: Professor Monica Hershberger
    Description: MUSC 222 (Stage Musicals) is offered every spring. A required course for musical theater majors at SUNY Geneseo, MUSC 222 is open to all students regardless of major. In fact, it is popular among students looking to fulfill one of their Fine Arts General Education requirements. MUSC 222 does NOT require students’ ability to read music notation. Instead, the course centers on the history and development of the American musical, challenging students to think critically about how the American musical has contributed to ideas about American national identity. Students in this course examine how factors such as race, gender, and class have been and continue to be negotiated on the American musical theater stage.
    On Tuesday, August 4, we'll examine the musical Rent in the context of the United States in the 1990s.
