White supremacist ideas never really disappeared from America's campuses and schools, but in the last decade the ideas of White nationalists and other White supremacists have reemerged as a more vocal and dangerous influence. The advocates of these ideologies are deeply immersed in the mythologies and conspiracies of their movement.

This situation often puts those who would stand against White supremacy expressed as White nationalism at a disadvantage. Communities committed to fighting White supremacy and White nationalism can be empowered with basic content and strategies to more effectively re-balance the contest.

This session will aid in this correction by introducing key vocabulary and concepts of contemporary White nationalists and White supremacists; by giving guidance on identifying the coded and un-coded language and symbolism of White nationalist and supremacist ideas; and by presenting best practices for addressing the presence of nationalism and supremacy on campus and in schools. Join Dr. Jeremy Best (Assistant Professor, History) as he discusses how to build content competence and practical confidence by presenting scenarios to address hypothetical and real examples of White supremacy and nationalism in the classroom, on campus, and in other settings.
