Dr. Simone Delerme and Dr. Catarina Passidomo along with Department of Sociology and Anthropology professors, Dr. J.T. Thomas (sociology) and Dr. Marcos Mendoza (anthropology) are planning the third annual Faculty and Graduate Student Forum on Race and Ethnicity. This year the forum will be Monday, Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Like last year, the goal is to have graduate students and faculty that do research about race and ethnicity (broadly defined) in the U.S. and abroad come together informally to learn about one another’s research projects and engage in discussion. Documentary shorts that explore race and ethnicity are welcome.
