Irene Kacandes to Moderate Discussion on Inequalities with UCLA and Columbia Scholars


"How do scholars define inequality? What issues are researchers in Humanities fields debating with regard to inequality in the United States, Europe and elsewhere today? What does it mean when we label something "systemic"? How do different types of inequality intersect to an individual's or a group's detriment or benefit? What would have to happen to create more equal societies? What strategies could interrupt the reproduction of at least certain types of inequalities?"

Historian Robin D.G. Kelley, Distinguished Professor and Gary B. Nash Endowed Chair in U.S. History at the University of California in Los Angeles, and cultural studies scholar Bruce Robbins, Old Dominion Foundation Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University, will discuss how intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity have historically produced and continue to create inequalities. Moderated by Professor Irene Kacandes, German Studies and Comparative Literature, Dartmouth College.
