Two books that informed the development of this conference topic:
Ahad-Legardy, B., & Poon, O. A. (Eds.). (2023). Difficult subjects: Insights and strategies for teaching about race, sexuality, and gender. Taylor & Francis. Available to read online through our library for free: https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/du/reader.action?docID=5829774&ppg=1 May be a perceived lack of connection for some disciplines who don’t see race, sexuality, and gender that as their content area.
Stone, D., Patton, B., & Heen, S. (2010). Difficult conversations: How to discuss what matters most. Penguin. https://www.pon.harvard.edu/shop/difficult-conversations-how-to-discuss-what-matters-most/ Perhaps vintage, but with some good overall tips. There is a copy at the library: Main Stacks ; BF637.C45 S78 1999
