Critical Whiteness Studies in Everyday Life: How Did I Get So White?

A Road Scholar Program by Tim Engles

Tim Engles, Professor of Multicultural American Literature and Critical Whiteness Studies, examines racial whiteness in America from his own individual perspective, by examining relevant moments from his own past that subtly taught him how to “be” white. Audience members of all racial backgrounds are encouraged to articulate their own, often buried experiences with racial whiteness.
