Wednesday, April 25, 2018
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Global Inequality Research Initiative

Racial reparations have been and continue to be one of the most explosive contemporary issues. Some argue that this country's history of enslavement renders some form of reparations necessary to the quest for social justice; that understanding reparations is central to honest conversations about race and racism. The Global Inequality Research Initiative Capstone Conference on Reparations will explore these issues. Join us for the spring capstone conference to be held Wednesday, April 25th at Duke University. The conference will feature a keynote address from sociologist Joe Feagin, Ella C. McFadden Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M. Learn more about Professor Feagin's research here.

The Global Inequality Research Initiative is an interdisciplinary, vertically integrated research initiative that emphasizes a judicious application of mixed methods from the social sciences, both quantitative and qualitative, and the treatment of representation and identity from the humanities. Simultaneously GIRI serves as a clearinghouse for the best available data and research on group-based inequality.

The event is free and open to the public. Please register online to attend.
