“Fair and Lovely”- A Panel Discussion on Colorism
This discussion will tackle the issue of colorism and its varied manifestations in communities across the globe. Rooted in racism and the long-term effects of colonialism, the societal ill has encouraged lighter-skin preference with an impact on multiple areas including access to various resources, opportunities for social mobility, representation in media and popular beauty standards. Join our panelists Dr Ginetta E.B. Candelario, Dr Rani Varghese, Bayan Abubakr and Dr Joanne Rondilla in conversation with Dr Rogaia M Abusharaf for a discussion on the colonial history of colorism and its continued socio-cultural impact in regions such as the Americas, South and Southeast Asia, and Africa.

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Humanities Research Fellowship for the Study of the Arab World. It is co-sponsored by the African Studies Minor, the Social Science Division, and the NYUAD Caribbean Student Association.
