Chauvin Trial Virtual Teach-In

Posted on: April 20, 2021

To help viewers consider the factors and implications surrounding the May 2020 killing of George Floyd — and the subsequent trial of police officer Derek Chauvin in spring 2021 ­– the College of Arts and Sciences has organized a virtual teach-in.

Currently, COVID and social distancing preclude the usual in-person teach-ins historically held to discuss and confront seismic events, from natural disasters to cultural or man-made ones. Therefore, we have assembled a cross-disciplinary selection of faculty perspectives in video form to help those in our community and beyond understand, and interrogate the elements of the Derek Chauvin trial.

The views expressed in the videos are those of individual faculty members, and all videos were recorded prior to the jury verdict.
