Society DEI Officer Hosts Online Discussion on Cultural Appropriation
Identifying and Addressing Cultural Appropriation
(Tuesday, April 28th at 7pm EST )
Jessica Van Hattem
Society Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer
In this class, we’ll identify some of the different ways that cultures interact, including cultural appreciation, exchange, assimilation, and the problematic appropriation. We’ll talk about why cultural appropriation is so harmful, in both a modern and SCA context, and explore some ways of self-evaluating and addressing our own behavior to avoid it. There will also be a discussion portion, so please bring your questions and we can explore them as a group.
