About Us

The Antiracist Pedagogy Collective (ARPC) was formed by graduate students from the USC English department in 2016 after the presidential election and its attendant controversies about race and identity, which pervaded USC classroom discussions.

Thus far, the ARPC has hosted a forum for graduate students to discuss their respective understandings of antiracist pedagogy and partnered with USC librarians to organize and annotate a library research guide, which provides resources for developing antiracist strategies, readings, and syllabi.

In Fall 2018 and Spring 2019, funded by a USC Libraries Dean's Challenge Grant, the ARPC along with USC Libraries are hosting teaching and learning community discussions to further the conversation and develop best practices for fostering antiracist classrooms.
