About Us

The Race & Ethnicity (“R&E”) training seminar is a space for students, faculty, and visiting speakers to present and discuss work-in-progress that relates to the sociological study of race and ethnicity.

We hope to cultivate a safe, critical, and generative space for seasoned and new scholars of race to present their work and engage in conversations on reflexivity in race scholarship, how to operationalize race, and many other topics. Presenters and participants use a variety of data, methods, and approaches, including large-scale data sets, surveys, and ethnography. The R&E brownbag encourages work at the intersections of race, class, and gender and frequently co-sponsors events with Femsem and SPAM.

We envision the brownbag as a forum that can push us all forward as race scholars. In this vein, we hope that you will join us!

Students can enroll in Soc 987 for 1 credit if they plan to attend regularly; this will be graded on a S/U basis.  Students may also enroll for 2-3 credits if they do extra work and make a presentation in the seminar. Enrollments for more than 1 credit require a specific plan and arrangement with the faculty supervisor, currently Pamela Oliver, pamela.oliver@wisc.edu.

NOTE: Beginning in the fall semester of 2016 this brown-bag will meet Mondays 3:30-5.
