Physical Anthropology's Views on the Biological Aspects of "Race"

Dr. Tyler O’Brien, Associate Professor of Physical Anthropology, will discuss the history of the typological race concept, including the field’s current understanding of biological differences among populations of the human species. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit RACE: Are We So Different? on display at the University Museum February 6 through June 9.

Racial Categorization: Impact on Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Face Processing

The human brain has evolved to efficiently process information related to race with same-race faces being processed differently than other-race faces. Dr. Kim MacLin and Dr. Otto MacLin, Professors of Psychology, UNI, will discuss how this differential processing affects recognition accuracy, memory, stereotypes, and prejudice in laboratory and real-world contexts. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit RACE: Are We So Different? on display at the University Museum February 6 through June 9.

Witness to Whiteness: Shades of White Anti-Racism

Why would people of white identity become active in anti-racist struggles? How can whites be more effective allies for people of color? Dr. Harry Brod, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at the University of Northern Iowa, will explore these important avenues to racial justice. His books include White Men Challenging Racism: 35 Personal Stories and his courses include “Money, Sex and Power: Theories of Race, Class and Gender.” He has extensive experience as a social justice activist and trainer, and is a member of Campus Coalition Builders, UNI’s diversity leadership team. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibit RACE: Are We So Different? on display at the University Museum February 6 through June 9.

University Museum Exhibit - RACE: Are We So Different?

"RACE: Are We So Different?" helps visitors understand what race is and what it is not. It gives them the tools to recognize racial ideas and practices in contemporary American life. The exhibit explores three themes: the everyday experience of race, the contemporary science that is challenging common ideas about race, and the history of this idea in the United States. Exhibit opening reception, February 9, 7:00pm.  Museum hours: M-F 9:00-4:30 and Saturdays 1:00-4:00. Closed Sundays and holidays.
