Diversity, Equity, Justice and Power (DEJP) Lecture Series

The Diversity, Equity, Justice and Power (DEJP) Lecture Series features research that asks questions or relies on evidence that focus on underrepresented or marginalized groups and/or centers research by scholars from historically underrepresented groups. It spotlights research and scholarship that enhance the department’s ongoing efforts to recognize, integrate, and learn from diverse ideas, perspectives, and viewpoints. The series involves joint meetings with other department colloquia as well as standalone lectures.

Our meetings take place in the Ogg Room (Room 422) in North Hall, unless otherwise noted.
