Discussion Series

2010-2011 Centering the Margins

 

 

Discussion Series

 The Discussion Series is a yearly event hosted by the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity (CSCRE).  Our theme for 2010-2011 is “Centering the Margins”.

 Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Founding of the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity

This Discussion Series offers a retrospect on the Center’s activities over the past decade as well as a look ahead to its future.  Its tone is both celebratory and critical.  

The phrase 'centering the margins' is a metaphor for what the Center is engaged in doing and, by it, we mean two things.  First, we hope our curricula and this

Discussion Series uncover the ways in which the marginal, the excluded, the outside, always exists within the centers of power and hegemony that create social, racial,

and sexual boundaries.  Second, by exploring the life, vitality, and political meaning of 'margins', we hope to make visible different forms, complications, and possibilities of marginality.
