About Us

The Race & Ethnicity (“R&E”) workshop or 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 workshop encourages work at the intersections of race, class, and gender and frequently co-sponsors events with Femsem and SPAM.

We envision the training seminar 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 and do related activities; this will be graded on an S/U basis.  See the syllabus. Enrollment for 2 or 3 credits requires permission of the instructor and requires additional work and a presentation of work in progress. Enrollments for more than 1 credit require a specific plan and arrangement with the faculty supervisor, currently Pamela Oliver, pamela.oliver@wisc.edu.

NOTE: In the spring semester of 2021 this training seminar will meet Mondays 1:45-3:15. This seminar will be conducted virtually. Join the email list to be informed of the virtual link or check our calendar.
