Dr. Krueger Publishes "A Guide to Teaching Race after Charlottesville"

Dr. Kristin Krueger's timely essay, titled "Tackling the Elephant in the Room: A Guide to Teaching Race after Charlottesville," reflects on best practices for teaching about race in the anthropology classroom. She includes specific lessons and helpful strategies for addressing human variation and ideas about race in both introductory and advanced classes, urging other anthropologists to incorporate lessons on race and racism, tackle the issues head-on, and avoid taking a neutral stance when confronting racism.
