Family Socialization Around Race/Ethnicity and Racism: Advancing Understanding of Racial/Ethnic Inequalities in the U.S.
Despite its significance for individuals, families and the larger society, research on family socialization on issues of race/ethnicity and racism remains limited. Thus, the goal of Penn State’s 30th Annual Symposium on Family Issues is to draw scholars’ attention to the study of family socialization around racial/ethnic inequalities and racism in the U.S., including with a focus on family-focused programs, practices and policies that may help to address this national challenge and its widespread and deleterious implications.

Session I: Race and Racism in the U.S.
Speakers in the first session will provide a broad overview of how social stratification and its consequences, specifically race and racism, have implications for racial/ethnic disparities in the U.S. Speakers will discuss the roles of micro- and macro- contexts and processes that underlie racial/ethnic disparities such as poverty and the contemporary legacy of slavery. Also considered is current research on perceptions of race in the U.S., including the role of racial colorblindness. Presider: Erica Frankenberg, Professor of Education, Department of Education Policy Studies, Penn State
12:15-1:15 pm (Private) Networking Lunch for speakers and graduate students/post-docs (For invitees only) - 110 Henderson, The Living Center
Session II: Racial/Ethnic Socialization in Families of Color
Speakers in this session will provide an historical view on racial/ethnic socialization as well as racial/ethnic socialization practices in multiple contexts and groups. The session will also highlight the translation of research evidence into family-focused intervention programs to promote effective racial/ethnic socialization practices for children of color. Presider: Jose Soto, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, Penn State

Session III: Antiracist Socialization in White Families
In addition to research on antiracist socialization by parents, particularly among majority white families, speakers will discuss factors that may explain the nature and extent of parents’ antiracist socialization, including racial colorblind socialization practices and the implications of parental socialization for how youth understand racism, power, white privilege, and racial inequality. Presider: Ashley Patterson, Associate Professor of Education, College of Education, Penn State
