About the Consortium

Established July 2014, first in the country.

As the United States -- and the world -- gets more diverse and cultures interact to an unprecedented degree, it's important to have a place where we can study and talk about things like, What is "race", class, and gender, and how do they play out in politics and government policy? How does our ideas about these differences affect our daily realities?
