Mission

Our mission is to support research, teaching, and public dialogue that examine race and intersecting dimensions of human difference including, but not limited to, class, gender, religion, and sexuality. We are interested in how systems of social distinction shape identities, modes of knowing, processes of inclusion and exclusion, and acts of representation.

Faculty Spotlight - Coming Soon

The scholarship of Emory faculty on questions of race and difference is second to none!  Given JWJI’s commitment to highlighting scholarship on race and difference, it is our pleasure to announce the launch of the JWJI Faculty Research Spotlight. 

This initiative is an occasional webcast featuring interviews with Emory faculty who have recently completed major scholarly projects on topics related to race and difference. 

Check out our Youtube page for archived webcasts and archive of all JWJI programming.
