Microaggressions in Everyday Life (FBG)
Faculty Book Group | Fall 2022 | Meeting 1 of 4
* NOTE: The book group has reached maximum capacity. Please email Lando Carter if you wish to be placed on the waiting list. *
You are invited to join a group of colleagues who will be reading and discussing the book Microaggressions in Everyday Life, 2nd ed., by Derald Wing Sue and Lisa Spanierman.
The publisher’s website describes the book as follows:
The revised and updated second edition of Microaggressions in Everyday Life presents an introduction to the concept of microaggressions, classifies the various types of microaggressions, and offers solutions for ending microaggressions at the individual, group, and community levels.
Written for students, faculty, and practitioners of psychology, education, social work, and related disciplines, the revised edition of Microaggressions in Everyday Life illustrates the impact microaggressions have on both targets and perpetrators and offers suggestions to eradicate microaggressions.
The group will be facilitated by Renee Jones and Soraya Nogueira and will meet four times via Zoom:
September 14, September 28, October 19, October 26
Each participant will be provided with a copy of the book in advance of the first meeting.
Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.
If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.
If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
