A partial schedule of Professor Yancy’s activities on campus has already been created. Students, staff and faculty who have any interest in including visits by Professor Yancy to meetings and courses may contact Eric Palmer, epalmer@allegheny.edu, to discuss further possibilities for scheduling George Yancy’s time.

Teaming with Emeritus Professor Bill Bywater, Professor Yancy will offer Philosophy 290, Whiteness and the Conceptualization of Race, a critical study of race as a structure of American society. The racial binary of black and white is explored through the lenses of African American philosophy, feminist theory, literature and pedagogy. Authors to be considered will include George Yancy, Frantz Fanon, Sara Ahmed, Lillian Smith, James Baldwin and Toni Morrison. The course is offered Mondays and Wednesdays at 11:00 – 12:15 (4 credits).

A complementary course offering, Philosophy 275 Black American Thinkers, will also draw upon Professor Yancy’s work and his presence at Allegheny College. The course is offered by Professor Bywater on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:00 – 4:15 (4 credits). Both course offerings serve as electives towards the Black Studies minor at Allegheny.

Commencement Volunteers

Posted on April 17, 2022 | Filed under General News

Commencement will take place this year on Saturday, May 21. As that is the day directly after the final day of exams for the Spring 2022 semester and coincides with student move-out, we have some non-standard staffing concerns this year. We are planning for one ceremony, and faculty will be invited to process in regalia, as has long been the tradition. However, we are asking that administrators be prepared to work and not walk, as we will not be able to staff this day with students as we did in previous years. Employees who wish to volunteer should contact Conference & Event Services at events@allegheny.edu.
