Othering and Belonging

April 24-26, 2015
Oakland Marriott City Center

The Othering & Belonging Conference is organized by the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society at UC Berkeley. The Haas Institute brings together researchers, organizers, stakeholders, communicators, and policymakers to identify and eliminate the barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society and to create transformative change toward a more equitable nation.

Check out the Greater Good Events Calendar.

This conference will bring together scholars, researchers, advocates, and organizers to examine the issue of Othering, a set of processes that engender marginality across any of the full range of human differences, such as race, socioeconomic status, gender, religion, statehood, ethnicity, ability/disability, sexual orientation, and more. The Othering & Belonging Conference will feature a multi-disciplinary, intersectional examination of the forms of othering in order to craft transformative solutions that promote belonging.

Speakers include GGSC Senior Fellow Rodolfo Mendoza-Denton, journalist Naomi Klein, activist Luis Garden Acosta, scholar bell hooks, and many more.
