What does CCSRE do?
As an academic resource, the Center promotes interdisciplinary and comparative approaches for understanding formations of race and ethnicity and their effects on human relations. It encourages scholarship that considers race and ethnicity as intersecting with class, gender, sexuality, religion, age, dis/ability, language, communication, migration and the environment. Work supported by the Center situates these discussions in local, regional, global, and transnational contexts.
The CCSRE draws on Middlebury College's expertise in international studies, environmental studies, and language and communication to support critical inquiry on race, ethnicity and diversity.
Programming includes reading groups, formal and informal presentations, workshops, symposia, film series, and research initiatives. It also fosters curricular and professional development around race, ethnicity and diversity.
