Microaggressions in Everyday Life (FBG)
Spring 2023 | Meeting 2 of 4
Dear MTSU faculty,
You are invited to join a group of colleagues who will be reading and discussing the book Microaggressions in Everyday Life, 2nd ed., by Derald Wing Sue and Lisa Spanierman.
The publisher’s website describes the book as follows:
The revised and updated second edition of Microaggressions in Everyday Life presents an introduction to the concept of microaggressions, classifies the various types of microaggressions, and offers solutions for ending microaggressions at the individual, group, and community levels.
Written for students, faculty, and practitioners of psychology, education, social work, and related disciplines, the revised edition of Microaggressions in Everyday Life illustrates the impact microaggressions have on both targets and perpetrators and offers suggestions to eradicate microaggressions.
This Faculty Book Group is sponsored by the Center for Fairness, Justice, and Equity (FJE) and will be facilitated by Dr. Michelle Stevens, director of the FJE. This group will meet four times via Zoom:
February 3 from 1-2PM
February 24 from 11AM-12PM
March 31 from 1-2PM
April 28 from 1-2PM
Each participant will be provided with a copy of the book in advance of the first meeting.
Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.
