Cache Owens-Velasquez profile

Sept 30, Wed


Caché Owens-Velásquez, Ph.D, is the new director of The Beauregard Center and comes to UNH with experience in university-community partnerships, teaching, and community-based action research. As a queer woman of color, Dr. Owens-Velásquez’s marginalized identities have informed her work within the academy. Caché’s research interests lie at the intersections of race, education, disability justice, fat liberation and community organizing.  Her talk will focus on her experiences in academia at the intersections of queerness, blackness, fatness, and motherhood and how these identities become more/less salient in certain environments.

Social Justice Education

Social Justice Education (SJE) is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff and graduate students to further diversity awareness, knowledge and skill sets allowing for critical analysis of the services we provide, and of the relational dynamics we seek in a diverse institution. In small group interactive sessions, we will explore “social justice” via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc.
