What’s in a Label? Thinking about Diversity and Racial Categories

As humans, we constantly label and categorize information on both conscious and unconscious levels. Labeling enables our brains to sort information efficiently, but the labels and categories we assign to information can form generalizations and stereotypes in our minds. When we allow stereotypes to define individuals, we fail to see the inherent diversity in humans. Race is a form of labeling. What are we describing when we assign racial categories to others and ourselves? How can we use language to increase understanding and connection, and what are its limitations? Join public interest lawyer Ann Su for a conversation exploring how the words we choose influence our understanding of race and racial diversity.

Marylhurst University’s series of free talks on issues of social justice continues Tuesday, April 25, with What’s in a Label? Thinking about Diversity and Racial Categories presented by public interest lawyer Ann Su.

“Everyone is invited to come, listen and participate in meaningful conversations to imagine a better future for us all,” says Dr. Rose.

Three of the scheduled talks are part of Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project.

The talk takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Old Library in the BP John Administration Building at Marylhurst University. For more information go to What’s in a Label.
