The aim of the Workshop on Critical Approaches to Race and Ethnicity is to create an
interdisciplinary space for the critical consideration of race and ethnicity. By
bringing together a diverse community of scholars and activists, we seek to examine
racial and ethnic formation and engage race and ethnicity as categories of analysis
in order to address larger social, cultural, economic, and political questions
across geographical boundaries. The Workshop will serve as a space for scholars to
develop and share ideas, drawing upon the personal and academic experiences of the
Columbia University community.
