Race & Gender in a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Challenging Stereotypes in Star Wars

Iris Imaginoria (Jessica Gray)
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(482)
The Star Wars saga is filled with racial stereotypes, sexist character arcs, and negative fan responses. We will deconstruct the stereotypes and discuss how to engage in a problematic fandom. One person can, in fact, make a difference.

Class experience

Dr. Jessica Gray studied race, gender and performance for in graduate school. For several years Dr. Gray worked with high-risk youth who were dealing with teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and significant health issues, among other challenges at an alternative high school, and she also taught at the middle school level in urban charter schools with very diverse racial populations. She has specific training in anti-oppression and multicultural program development and passionately applies it to her teaching. 
Racism and sexism are difficult topics for adults to broach, especially in fandoms we love. But we MUST have these challenging conversations if our world is ever going to change, and it is through these types of stories that we can best understand some of these incredibly intense concepts. We will talk about hatred and bigotry. We will not go into detail about hate crimes, and I will not show graphic violence. I will do my best to make sure all curse words are muted or “bleeped” out, but some may get through in a speech or source.
