Chris Rogers

Christopher Rogers is a doctoral candidate in sociology specializing in Critical Race Theory, Abolition, and Care. As an Instructor, Chris teaches Race & Ethnicity, Women, Gender, and Sexuality, and Black & Brown Liberation. Furthermore, as currently titled “The Hospital Won’t Save Us: An Exploration of Racism and Care as an act of Liberation,” Chris’ dissertation exists in the duality of exploration and imagination. He explores how and why hospitals are sites of racial violence in which Black people will always experience inadequate care because racism is a permanent fixture in society. Secondly, he imagines newer healthcare infrastructures by developing a concept around care. Theoretically, reimagining what care is and how it should be administrated to one day lead to our collective liberation.
