Critical Legalities Symposium: Race, Ethnicity and Inequality

The goals of this workshop are to brainstorm and to identify cutting edge questions in research on race, ethnicity, inequality, and law. These intersections, which have been the focus of scholarly discourse for decades, remain particularly timely in a period of apparently increased surveillance, racial profiling, and securitization. Are these intersections taking new forms? If so, what are they? And, how can we as scholars contribute to an understanding of their implications? We anticipate that the workshop will lead to a conference that explores these issues in greater depth as well as to a special issue of Law and Society Review.

Organized by the Center in Law, Society and Culture and Law and Society Review.

Co-sponsored by the School of Social Ecology, School of Humanities, School of Social Sciences, and the Department of Criminology, Law & Society
