January Scholar of the Month Conversation

A series of monthly presentations is furthering the IUPUI Center for Translating Research Into Practice’s mission of promoting and broadcasting the important research of IUPUI’s faculty members.

The Center for TRIP Scholar of the Month Conversation Series January speaker is Chalmer Thompson, professor of urban education studies and coordinator for the counseling/counselor education program at the School of Education.

Thompson studies and develops theories about the psychological impacts of racism on people. 

Drawing from her work on racialized violence, her discussion will address how some scholars and practitioners perpetuate forms of systemic violence, and she will demonstrate how liberation-based psychology can help end oppression.

The conversation titled “What Would Our Interactions Look Like If We Were Really Serious About Ending Racism?” will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Jan. 27 via Zoom. Register on the TRIP Center website
