The Race and Ethnicity Workshop (R&E) is intended to be a space to bring together graduate students and faculty from across NYU (and, sometimes, visiting speakers from other institutions) who are undertaking the sociological study of race and ethnicity. Primarily the workshop is a venue for constructive feedback of works-in-progress (e.g., articles, book chapters, dissertation chapters, proposals, and job talks). We welcome scholars using all methodologies, and who focus on race and ethnicity both in the U.S. and abroad. We plan to adopt a hybrid mode, meeting mainly in-person at the Memorial Room (4130) on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:30pm. Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees. Zoom links for each workshop will be sent to all NYU Sociology faculty and Ph.D. students, as well as to NYU community members on our mailing list; if you would like to be added to the listserv or receive the link for a particular session, please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
