DEI Focus: Identifying and Addressing Cultural Appropriation

In this class, Baroness Zahra will identify some of the different ways that cultures interact, including cultural appreciation, exchange, assimilation, and the problematic appropriation. We’ll talk about why cultural appropriation is so harmful, in both a modern and SCA context, and explore some ways of self-evaluating and addressing our own behavior to avoid it. A light handout supports this class https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JKDI…
