We regret to share that the seminars featuring Urmitapa Dutta, Adrianna Kezar, and Audrey Bennett have been postponed, with an intention to reschedule. Evolving University of Michigan policies intended to best protect the campus and local community have encouraged us to follow suit with many other local events at this time.
The NCID Research and Scholarship Seminar Series features scholars who have furthered our understanding of historical and contemporary social issues related to identity, difference, culture, representation, power, oppression, and inequality — as they occur and affect individuals, groups, communities, and institutions. The series also highlights how research and scholarship can be applied to address current and contemporary diversity, equity, and inclusion issues in higher education and society.
