In this interactive training with Dr. Jacqueline Battalora, guilt will be explored as a gendered practice. We will call up experiences of guilt as a guidepost; as stifling; as a weapon; as social control. The wave of so-called “anti-critical race theory” legislation blocking certain content from public school classrooms will be posited as policy protecting primarily women and children from the discomfort of guilt. This largely white male effort will be contextualized within a long line of historical practices similarly couched. Participants can expect to expand their historical knowledge, to see guilt in new ways, and to find within experiences of white guilt insights to inform a racial justice pathway.
