Anti-Racist Reading Group

“In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” –Angela Davis

This is a reading group in the Purdue math department that I co-facilitate with Alden Bradford. The group is focused on antiracism, generally in the world at large and specifically in the realms of math and math education. We strive to maintain an inclusive atmosphere for open discussion, personal growth, and active exploration. Total beginners to antiracism are especially welcome, and you don’t have to complete every reading every week to participate.

Check out the readings that our group have completed and as well as what anticipate reading as we continue to meet on the Antiracist Reading List!

If you’re interested in learning more, please contact Naomi Levine at or Alden Bradford at

Writer’s Workshop Group

This is a group of graduate students that get together twice a week via Zoom to talk about our writing processes, share our tips for keeping track of those sneaky conference deadlines, and serve as a social obligation which reminds us to keep up with our writing. I founded this group during the Fall Semester of 2020 as a response to the overwhelming isolation of doing academic work that was being exacerbated by the global pandemic of COVID-19.

We are open to graduate students from all disciplines! Why struggle alone when it’s more cathartic to struggle together? Our Summer meeting schedule has yet to be determined. Email me to get added to the roster and receive the link!

Here’s a list of some of the helpful resources that members have shared that have helped them as they work on improving their relationship to the work of writing and the writing process (I have done my best, with the capacity that I have, to check through these resources to make sure that they are accessible and useful for a diverse audience, but my time is limited; if there are concerns about any of these resources, please, email me):

If you are interested in joining, or would like more information, please contact Naomi Levine at

DISCO Network

The DISCO Network integrates critical humanistic, social science, and artistic approaches to digital studies and foregrounds questions about the cultural implications of technology to envision a new anti-racist and anti-ableist digital future.

The acronym DISCO stands for: Digital, Inquiry, Speculation, Collaboration, and Optimism!

The following five labs are associated with the DISCO Network

Black Communication & Technology Lab at the University of Maryland

Future Histories Studio at Stony Brook University

Digital Accessible Futures Lab at the University of Michigan

Humanities & Technoscience Lab at Purdue University

Project on Rhetorics of Equity, Access, Computation, & Humanities Lab at Georgia Tech


LASER (Long-term Assistance and SErvices for Research) PULSE (Partners for University-Led Solutions Engine) is a five-year, $70M program funded through USAID’s Innovation, Technology, and Research Hub, that delivers research-driven solutions to field-sourced development challenges in USAID Partner countries.

A consortium led by Purdue University, with core partners Catholic Relief Services, Indiana University, Makerere University, and the University of Notre Dame, implements the LASER PULSE program through a growing network of 2,700+ researchers and development practitioners in 62 countries.

LASER PULSE collaborates with USAID missions, bureaus, and independent offices and other local stakeholders to identify research needs for critical development challenges, and funds and strengthens capacity of researcher-practitioner teams to co-design solutions that translate into policy and practice.
