CORE: Critical Orientations to Race and Ethnicity
Meeting Description: 

Please join us for a lunchtime seminar with Dr. Stacey Lee. She will be discussing her latest project, an historical ethnography on the role of education in the racial positioning of Chinese Americans in the Mississippi and Arkansas Delta from the 1940’s to the present. The overarching theme of her research agenda involves the role of education in the incorporation of immigrant youth into the United States. Her research examines the multiple and complex ways in which race, class, gender, and local context influence immigrant students’ opportunities, experiences, and identities.
