Our work responds to a crucial exigence about designing antiracist pedagogy in large research teams, undergraduate and graduate studies in US higher education. You can also have access to the content of this work on SIGDOC’s conference website as well as have the chance to engage with other excellent presentation and proceedings content that peer contributors have shared.
