Fall 2021 Emerging Scholars’ Program: “Addressing Systemic Racism in Health & Medicine”
The Department of Anthropology is sponsoring an Emerging Scholars’ Program “Addressing Systemic Racism in Health & Medicine” this fall. In addition to invited scholars presenting their work in two of our medical anthropology courses, the program will include a workshop and a public-facing roundtable in mid-November. Events will be chaired by Professor Dana-Ain Davis, renowned feminist and medical anthropologist from Queens College and The Graduate Center CUNY.
As part of the program, Professor Davis will also offer a talk in our Department Talk Series on Friday, Nov 12 “Reproductive Injustice: Racism, Pregnancy & Premature Birth” which is also the title of her recent book. For more details on the program, contact project organizer Prof Kimberly Arkin.
