The Diversity Bargain

April 8, 7:00 PM

Free

Natasha Warikoo is an expert on racial and ethnic inequality in education. Her most recent book, The Diversity Bargain: And Other Dilemmas of Race, Admissions, and Meritocracy at Elite Universities, illuminates how undergraduates attending Ivy League universities and Oxford University conceptualize race and meritocracy. The book emphasizes the contradictions, moral conundrums, and tensions on campus related to affirmative action and diversity, and how these vary across racial and national lines. The book won multiple awards from the American Sociological Association, the Society for the Study of Social Problems, and the American Educational Studies Association.

Cosponsored by the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, the Education Program, Sociology Department, and Interdisciplinary Studies Division.
