Our annual Hon. Edward D. Re Faculty Workshop Series brings scholars from across the country together to discuss their current research and receive feedback on their works-in-progress from our faculty.  

Our Workshop Series this year features scholarship related to race, racism, and anti-racism across a host of domains. Our speakers will focus on racial justice and racial empowerment issues - particularly those most affecting, experienced by, or relevant to Black people in America - arising in, for example, policing, criminal justice, housing, education, academia, religious institutions, politics, voting, healthcare, consumer protection, tax policy, corporate life, the media, the entertainment world, and other structural systems.
