AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - On October 19, Dan Sing Wue, professor of psychology and education, will be the speaker for the Critical Conversation Speaker Series. The topic of discussion will be Microaggression. According to Merriam Webster, microaggression is a comment or action that subtly and often unconsciously or unintentionally expresses a prejudiced attitude toward a member of a marginalized group, such as a racial minority.
Wue's experience in this field speaks for itself. He has written two books called "Microaggressions in Everyday Life and Race Talk" and "The Conspiracy of Silence." He is an author of over 160 scholarly articles, 20 books, and various media productions.
Wue is currently in the Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology at Teachers College and the School of Social Work at Columbia University. He was the co-founder and first president of the Asian American Psychological Association.
The event starts at 5:00 pm. It is free and it will be hosted by Auburn University Office of the Provost and Office of Inclusion and Diversity.
