Director's Welcome Message

CCSRE Director, Jennifer DeVere Brody

CCSRE Director, Jennifer DeVere Brody

Welcome to Stanford's CENTER FOR COMPARATIVE STUDIES IN RACE & ETHNICITY. 

We are thrilled to have celebrated our 20th anniversary year as the place to debate, discuss and develop significant questions about race and ethnicity.  Interdisciplinarity  is at the heart of  our mission since we believe that different disciplinary lenses allow us to understand the complexity of how race and ethnicity work.   All of us at the Center seek to promote meaningful dialogue about the lived experience and theoretical arguments that shape race and ethnicity.   At CCSRE we understand that race and ethnicity affect  every area and interaction --citizenship, gender, sexuality, aesthetics, politics, health, technology,  law, literature, economics, social media and more.  We hope that you will join us  for our many exciting lectures, events, classes and seminars all of which focus on dismantling hierarchies of race and ethnnicity and mobilizing  knowledge in the creation of a more  just and equitable world.  We feel this aspect of our mission is even more signifcant in the face of rising nationalisms and  entrenchments across the globe.
