Identify at least one way whiteness informs your major field of study or one of the classes in which you are currently enrolled. In a brief essay (around 500 words), explain precisely how racial domination is normalised; offer at least one consequence of this normalisation and advance at least one suggestion for how whiteness might be effectively confronted (note: this assignment is taken almost verbatim from Desmond and Emirbayer 2016:279). Submit your essay by creating a new thread in the ‘Whiteness in Education’ discussion forum on Blackboard.
