Mission

The Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE) is Middlebury College’s primary and central hub for interdisciplinary and critical research and pedagogy on race and ethnicity as these intersect with gender, sexuality, class, religion, age, (dis)ability, health, language, education, environment, housing, diaspora, and migration. By critically interrogating the ubiquitous and complex impacts of racism, ethnocentrism, and racializing processes, the CCSRE’s work is geared toward challenging and dismantling structures of power and systems of inequity, while democratizing knowledge and knowledge production. The scope of this work traverses historical periods and disciplines, as well as local, regional, national, transnational, and global contexts.

The CCSRE supports faculty work on race and ethnicity and offers students and the broader Middlebury College community an array of resources and programming including lectures, workshops, a database of related courses, informal discussions, and events. Additionally, the Center provides faculty development opportunities around research and teaching, including faculty lecture series and research funding, as well as pedagogy and course development grants designed to address matters of equity in the classroom and to integrate course content aimed at centering previously marginalized knowledges and experiences.
