Faculty Research Networks

Faculty Research Networks at the Research Institute of Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity are faculty-initiated and faculty-driven interdisciplinary research communities that bring together Stanford faculty and visiting scholars to develop individual and collaborative research on race and ethnicity. Each network focuses on a different theme that intersects with race and ethnicity (e.g., health, environment, criminal justice, housing).

What have been the long-term impacts of slavery after formal abolition? In a range of historical contexts we seek to explore the memory of slavery in the longue durée. The network will be comparative, incorporating Atlantic, Indian and Mediterranean worlds (among others), in ancient and modern periods. There will be some emphasis on Cape slavery in South Africa (1653-1834) as a relatively neglected element within comparative slave studies.

Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates build on research in the field of English education, including from two of our network members, to create a Reading Race digital toolkit. This free, online resource hosted by SPARQ (Social Psychological Answers to Real-World Questions) website is modeled after courses at Stanford on Young Adult literature and curriculum design. The toolkit includes flexible instructional strategies, lesson content-models, recommended books, and an educator community forum.
