Welcome to CRRES!
The Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University in Bloomington is an interdisciplinary, academic center. Its mission is to promote research on race and ethnicity, bring together scholars across interdisciplinary units for dialogue and collaboration, and train the next generation of scholars here on the IUB campus. We invite you to browse our website, attend our speaker series, and engage our faculty and students as they pursue their research agendas.
- Congratulations to Pam Jackson and Rashawn Ray on the publication of their book, How Families Matter: Simply Complicated Intersections of Race, Gender, and Work. The book is based on data from Dr. Jackson’s SRP on Family, Work, and Health.
- Electoral integrity is a cornerstone of democratic representation. As we engage in a nationwide debate about the role that race plays in access to voting, we need to know the facts about the health of our own state’s electoral system. As a member of the Indiana Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, CRRES Affiliated Faculty Dr. Ellen Wu has co-produced a memorandum outlining electoral concerns in Indiana. In an op-ed to the Indy Star published this week, Dr. Wu summarizes the findings of the committee and calls on Hoosiers to strengthen voting access across the state.
