What does it mean to be an anti-racist peer tutor? In this participant-driven workshop, we will unpack the ways that bias plays out as we respond to other people’s writing. How and why do people judge others based on how they write and speak? Whose languages, whose dialects, and whose voices command respect—or not—and in what contexts? Dealing with bias is not an easy task, so we’ll approach our work with patience and humor!
