Deconstructing Race: Multicultural Education Beyond the Color-Bind

In his new book, Deconstructing Race: Multicultural Education Beyond the Color-Blind (Teachers College Press, 2017), Professor Jabari Mahiri of UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Education, explores contemporary and historical scholarship on race, the emergence of multiculturalism, and the rise of the digital age.

Share your experience with the GALC!

The Graphic Arts Loan Collection (GALC) at the Morrison Library was created in 1958 by Professor Herwin Schaefer, who believed the best way to foster an appreciation of art was for students to live with actual art. With that in mind, we would love to hear about your experience living with your GALC piece.
