Resources on Microaggressions

The University of Nebraska Lincoln Library has a resource page entitled “Diversity and Microaggressions, Strategies for Making a Difference.

Each tab on the resource page contains writings or links to additional resources related to understanding more about microaggressions, and identifying ways to act.

The page contains sheets with examples of everyday microaggressions, links to activities, case studies, and resources for publications. There is even a link to a great piece on the Conditionally Accepted blog on navigating difficult dialogue in the classroom for educators.

Check it out for yourself. You may find some additional resources to add to your social justice toolkit.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.

Though they may seem minor, microaggressions are more than just a buzzword. For more examples of microaggressive behavior and some relevant resources, check out this website. […]
