You are warmly invited to an informal conversation with Dr. Anu Taranath, Queer Study Abroad, Traveling While Brown, and the Politics of Doing Good in an Unequal World.

Dr. Anu engages around hard questions in study abroad, “service learning”, and international programs regarding intersections of travel, identity politics, and social justice. A faculty member in the departments of English and Comparative History of Ideas at the University of Washington in Seattle, Dr. Anu has worked with students and others in the United States, South Africa, India, Mexico, Colombia, Ghana, Morocco, and Senegal. As founder and director of Dr. Anu Consulting: Dialogues For Justice, she invites people “to grapple with the challenges of history and navigate our present with curiosity, honesty and a commitment to social justice.”  For more on Dr. Anu, please visit www.anutaranath.com.

Dr. Anu is in Boston as part of a national tour for her latest book, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World, illustrated by Ronald “Otts” Bolisay.  She will also discuss her other publications: Q-SAR: Queer Study Abroad ResourceLet’s WOW It Out: Simple Drawings to Explore Big Ideas, “Traveling While Brown: Journeys in Privilege, Guilt and Connection,” and T.I.P.S. for Study Abroad: Simple Letters for Complex Engagement.
