Ivy League prof paints ‘microaggressions’ as ‘toxic rain’ in lecture
A Columbia University psychology professor will be giving a “microaggressions” lecture Wednesday at Washington and Lee University.
Columbia professor Derald Wing Sue will give “Microaggressions: Toxic Rain on College Campuses” at the Virginia school at an event sponsored by Washington and Lee’s Department of Cognitive and Behavioral Science and the Root Lecture Fund, according to a Washington & Lee news release.
Sue has written a number of books on related subjects of racism and “microaggressions.” The professor also co-founded the Asian American Psychological Association with his brother.
Sue recently wrote about “microinterventions,” or tactics used by individuals in order to stop “microaggressions.”
“Although microaggressions often seem harmless to observers, they are considered a form of everyday discrimination that can have a cumulative and negative psychological impact,” Washington & Lee spokeswoman Erica Turman said in the news release.
