As part of the Modern Languages and Literature (MLL) Vocabulary Diversity Initiative 2.0, students in the MLL Anti-racist Pedagogy tutorial are organizing a series of round tables and workshops that bring together scholars, intellectuals, activists, and artists from a range of cultural-linguistic backgrounds to discuss themes related to language, racism, bias, justice, and equity. This first roundtable will explore the intersections of race and music through different languages and cultures from the perspectives of music scholars and public figures Katelina Eccleston (Associate Producer for LOUD: The History of Reggaeton, a Spotify original podcast that explores the history of the genre), Juliet Hess (Assistant Professor of Music Education at Michigan State University’s College of Music), Theresa Martinez (Associate Professor of Sociology and former Assistant Vice President of Academic Outreach at the University of Utah), and Steve Puig (Assistant Professor of French Literature and Culture at St. John’s University). Fordham faculty mentors Andrew Clark, Sarah Grey, Joshua Jordan, Patricia Romero, Alessia Valfredini.
