U. Michigan Ann Arbor Seeks to Hire Anti-Racism Prof for Art and Design Department

“an emerging interdisciplinary field of research that centers structural racism produced and reproduced by information technology, design, and technology policies”

Why is such a person needed in the art and design department? No discipline is safe from this ideology.

The College Fix reports:

University art department wants to hire an ‘Anti-Racism by Design’ tenured professor

The University of Michigan’s flagship campus in Ann Arbor wants to hire a professor with a focus on anti-racism and “structural racism.” The new tenured professor position is being offered in the public university’s art and design school.

The position is being offered as part of the university’s new “Racial Justice & Technology” cluster, according to the job listing for the Anti-Racism By Design professorship.

The professor will combine with a public policy and a information professor in “an emerging interdisciplinary field of research that centers structural racism produced and reproduced by information technology, design, and technology policies.”

“Candidates will show a deep understanding of racial formations as they relate to design practices,” the job description said. “Their work may include anti-racism in analytic frameworks, design methods, fabrication techniques, human-technology interactions, and other creative research and teaching that positively impacts racial justice.”

It’s part of an initiative to hire “at least 20 new tenure-track faculty…with scholarly expertise in racial inequality and structural racism to schools and colleges across campus.”

“The initiative will recruit faculty who have scholarly expertise on bias and power within society and actions to change racial inequities in policies, structures, and human interactions,” the university said. “It encourages an intersecting focus on pressing social challenges, including environmental justice and health equity.”

Every human can learn, use and design technology. It simply takes training.

Structure and Logic are absolutely essential for design. Math skills are important, but not as important as structure and logic.

Eliminating both will absolutely speed up the demise of any industry in our country. That does appear to be their plan.

Ok stated that a bit wrong. Every human can use and learn with training. The design bit does take specific skills. The ability to use logic and structures, and some math does not come with every human, some are better than others. The ones that are better than others are not defined by their race.

It looks to me to be nothing more than a variation on political officers in the Soviet bloc.
