Dr. Ruth Behar, Dr. Jacqueline Mattis, and Dr. Alford Young, Jr. will lead a workshop on Friday, December 9 at 10:00 a.m. in Brownlee (2327 SEB). Their workshop is titled “Claim Your Set—Researching Race and Social Inequality from Different Disciplinary Perspectives.”

What does it mean to study race and social inequality from different disciplinary frames or fields? Could you claim your set—your scholarly neighborhood or home? In this workshop, Dr. Ruth Behar, Dr. Jacqueline Mattis, and Dr. Alford Young, Jr. share the affordances and challenges of studying race and social inequality in the disciplines of anthropology, psychology, and sociology, respectively. The panelists will share their narratives into their respective discipline, discuss their body of work, and describe how social inequality is made knowable through different disciplinary lenses. Over the course of the workshop, students will discover and affirm their disciplinary inclinations and identities as researchers. The workshop speaks to a long-standing concern related to “the weakening of the disciplinary base and epistemological frame that relates to basic education research.”
