Lecture: “Bias is Absolutely Everywhere”

David Schroeder, associate professor of criminal justice and associate dean of the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, will present a talk on Thursday, March 10, titled “Bias is Absolutely Everywhere.” The presentation, which will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Gehring Hall 301, will examine his research and teaching experiences over the last three years as the University’s Oskar Schindler Professor.  

Schroeder created the “Finding Alois” project in which students spent more than a year searching for a former Nazi soldier who helped an Austrian Jewish family survive Kristallnacht, the wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms which took place on November 9 and 10, 1938 Schroeder also taught a study-abroad course in Poland and led multiple visits to the Museum of Tolerance in New York City, a center dedicated to helping schools and workplaces enhance the skills that promote dialogue and understanding around difficult issues.

The event will also include an overview of the work of prior Oskar Schindler professors and information about the application process to select the next Oskar Schindler Humanities Foundation Endowed Professor. The professorship is awarded to a faculty member for a three-year period to conduct research, develop new coursework and guide students in projects related to examining principles underlying good human behavior.
