The Racism and Racial Experiences (RARE) Workgroup investigates the contribution of racism to determining lifestyles and life chances in the United States and abroad. We interrogate sociological theory and popular perspectives that explain what race means and describe why racism endures as a structure and process. The RARE Workgroup is publication-production-oriented, writing in small teams and as a collective. We will meet on Wednesdays from 9am-11am in 340 Kraft Hall every other week during the 2020-21 academic year. All are welcome to visit with us and/or join the workgroup. Contact Rachell Davis (Rachell.Davis@rice.edu) for more information.
