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 will be alternating with the Inequality Workshop; Wednesdays 12:30-1:50PM via Zoom.
