Headdresses, Cornrows, and Sombreros: What Racist Parties Teach Us About Diversity and Racism on Campus

Join us for a talk by Ingrid Nelson, an associate professor of sociology at Bowdoin College, where she teaches classes on education, race, transitions to adulthood, and research methods. Nelson's research examines how racialized educational systems shape the resources, relationships, and identities that enable marginalized adolescents to navigate structural inequalities. Her current research focuses on investigating what and how undergraduates learn about race in the aftermath of controversial racist costume parties.
