The Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity is collaborating with the Los Angeles Review of Books Publishing Workshop to offer up to two scholarships for the summer 2022 program. The LARB workshop runs from June 20 to July 22, 2022 and will be fully virtual. The CCSRE scholarships will cover the full cost of tuition for Stanford graduate students who work on race.

Interested parties should apply directly through the LARB Publishing Workshop portal and name their institution as Stanford CCSRE. All currently enrolled Stanford graduate students are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to students who participate in the intellectual community at CCSRE.

Applications are open now through April 15. See the website for more information about the workshop and for the link to apply.

Please contact Interim Associate Director Annie Atura Bushnell at atura [at] stanford.edutarget="_blank" with questions about the program or eligibility.

Imagining Justice

Imagining Justice is a new arts-based diversion program hosted by Stanford’s Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity, the Stanford Arts Institute, and the Stanford Criminal Justice Center. The program is a partnership with the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, and new collaborations with Contra Costa County and Milwaukee County (Wisconsin) are in development. The DA’s Offices, case management organizations and Stanford partners, identify eligible youth (14-18 years old) accused of committing misdemeanors and nonviolent offenses and offer the opportunity to participate in a pre-filing, pre-arraignment arts diversion program. Participants will complete one to three 90-minute sessions, depending on the agreement with the DAs Office and other partners, including reflection, critical analysis, and art-making. Participation in the arts diversion program results in the dismissal of any criminal charges.

The Center for Comparative Studies in Race & Ethnicity (CCSRE) seeks three Public Writing Fellows from January through June 2022 to contribute to the important work of the Center.
