The Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture at the University of Chicago is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to promoting engaged scholarship and debate around the topics of race and ethnicity. It is especially interested in how these topics and their structural manifestations impact and shape people’s daily lives. While researchers affiliated with the Center recognize the significance of the black/white paradigm in the United States, they are committed to expanding the study of race and ethnicity beyond the black/white paradigm. Broadly, their research program encourages the study of race and processes of racialization in comparative and transitional frameworks. The work of faculty affiliates ranges from an examination of processes of racialization among dominant groups to the study of racialized minorities within the United States and black and/or indigenous populations in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Asian Pacific and Europe. They have initiated programs in research and scholarship, community programming, and undergraduate programming and curriculum.
