Please join us for the third lecture of the Critical Cultural Studies Lecture Series! CME and IRISE is bringing to campus one of the foremost scholars on race, Dr. Bonilla-Silva.

The Critical Cultural Studies Lecture Series is designed to provoke conversation at DU about the importance of disciplines like Queer and GLBT Studies, Disability Studies, Race and Ethnic Studies, and other programs that interrogate questions of power and privilege.The primary goal is to consider how and in what ways such programs can be built at DU.We are excited to have Dr. Bonilla-Silva contribute in this conversation.

Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silvais the Chair and Professor of the Sociology department at Duke University. Bonilla-Silva is one of the foremost scholars on race today. His critically acclaimed work has provided fresh theoretical approaches in challenging how racial matters are analyzed and talked about or ignored at the personal and institutional level. Bonilla-Silva is perhaps best known for his prize-winning book, Racism Without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in the United States.Recently, he has turned his scholarly attention towards assessing the diversity challenge for historically White colleges and universities.
