Understanding Identity within a Global Context: A conversation with Gonzaga Professor Dr. Claudia Bucciferro, author of FOR-GET: Identity, Media, and Democracy in Chile

Come and engage with GU Professor Claudia Bucciferro of Communication Arts about issues of identity within a global context, first in general and then more specifically in relationship to Chile and the realities found in the developing world. It seeks to create a space of reflection for people to think and talk about identity and its links to civic engagement, and will introduce the Model of Situated Identity as a tool (both theoretical and practical) that can be used to understand identity within intercultural contexts. After the discussion, there will be a FREE reception.

About nwchr

The Northwest Coalition for Human Rights (NWCHR) exists to facilitate connections and communication among organizations and individuals who are engaged in human rights and social justice work in the Northwest region of the United States, with special focus on the Inland Northwest. The coalition, inspired by Bill Wassmuth's former Northwest Coalition Against Malicious Harassment, will give strength to those working at the local level by allowing them to share resources, information, and ideas, as well as making them part of a larger support system. The University of Idaho Office of Human Rights, Access, and Inclusion (HRAI) in Moscow serves as the administrative home for the NWCHR, and the Coalition strives to build strong membership from throughout Idaho and eastern Washington, as well as from other parts of the Northwest region. All are welcome to join NWCHR and give their input.
