an essential reflection on privilege if we are to transform the inequities in our culture
with Jonathan Miller-Lane Ph.D., Middlebury College
Jonathan Miller-Lane earned his Ph.D. in Secondary Education from the University of Washington, Seattle, with a thesis that focused on the facilitation of disagreement in discussion and how the practices of Aikido might help with facilitation skills. He earned your M.Ed. from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and a BA in Middle Eastern and African History from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Jonathan teaches several courses on Education in America each year and founded and runs the Blue Heron Aikido, a center for training and certification in these martial arts.
Jonathan’s work on “whiteness” is some of the most innovative diversity work being done with students who come from privileged backgrounds and his innovative curriculum may become the standard bearer for the type of compassionate and deep transformational work that needs to occur to unpack racial division and projection in our culture.
