Week 7: Offshoots

What are CRT “offshoots”? Where and why did they emerge? How do different communities take up their “Crits”? Are there potential limitations of offshoots?

Week 7 (10/18): Offshoots

You will choose four articles from the list below; you will be responsible for reporting the key tenets of your “offshoots” back to the class. Facilitators for this week will be responsible for facilitating conversations between and among the groups, while also asking broader questions of “dilution” of CRT, specificity, black-white binaries, etc.
