Prof. Jefferson Bullock to facilitate during 'Day for Learning and Speaking Out Against Racial Injustice'

Professor Jalila Jefferson Bullock will facilitate an important session during Duquesne University's Day for Learning and Speaking Out Against Racial Injustice: Resistance, Protest, and Civil Disobedience on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

Jefferson Bullock will moderate a noon - 1 p.m. session, "Activism, Political Resistance, and the Classroom," with Anna Floerke Scheid, a theology professor from McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts.

The session is designed for faculty who teach about issues related to racial injustice and/or who want to create courses and assignments that enable students to better understand, and perhaps participate in, acts of resistance to racial injustice. Participating faculty from across the University will learn from one another; brainstorm ideas for syllabus and assignment development; and hear from faculty members who have already begun to do this work and can share stories about best practices and pitfalls to avoid. The session is open by invitation only. Other sessions during the full-day event are designed for student participation.

Jefferson Bullock joined Duquesne Law's faculty in 2017. Her research interests include constitutional law, criminal law, criminal procedure, federal sentencing, legislation, and civil rights.
