Dr. Brenda J. Allen will speak about and sign her new book, Difference Matters: Communicating Social Identity, on Thursday, June 1st at 6:30pm, at Boulder Bookstore.

About the Book:

Dr. Brenda J. Allen’s proven ability and flare for presenting complex and oftentimes sensitive topics in nonthreatening ways carry over in the latest edition of Difference Matters. This eye-opening, vibrant text motivates readers to think about valuing difference as a positive, enriching feature of society.

Allen provides historical overviews to show how perceptions of gender, race, social class, sexuality, ability, and age have varied throughout time and place. She also offers practical guidance for how to communicate difference more humanely. Interactive elements such as Spotlights on Media, I.D. Checks, Tool Kits, and “Reflection Matters” questions awaken interest, awareness, and creative insights for change. While many examples are from organizational contexts, readers from a wide range of backgrounds can relate to them and appreciate their relevance.
