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 meet four (4) times for Fall 2020, alternating with the Inequality Workshop; Wednesdays 12:30-1:50PM via Zoom.
Fall 2020 Schedule:
- Sept 23: Ann Morning, "Difference in Play: Sport and Descent," from An Ugly Word: Rethinking "Race" in Italy, co-authored with Marcello Maneri.
- Oct 21: Maria Abascal, sharing a paper examining the criteria Americans use to classify neighborhoods as “diverse.”
