Subject: ACLS Discussion on Race and Racism


Dear Colleagues,


A few weeks ago the ACLS and the SSRC sponsored an interesting discussion about race and racism as part of a series of talks they are hosting to discuss diversity and inclusion within the academy.


A video of the discussion is now available. The link is below. I encourage you to watch it when you have a moment (it lasts 90 minutes) and to share it, especially among graduate students.


Best wishes,





Denise Z. Davidson
