Critical Race Theory and Empirical Methods Symposium
Friday, April 20, 2012
University of California, Irvine
School of Law, EDU 1111 (Directions)
For the past two years, a group of scholars from law, the humanities and the social sciences have gathered together as part of a project designed to engage the previously unexplored confluences between empirical studies of race and identity and critical work looking at similar subject matters. Previously, these scholars met as a hosted working group, where legal academics and scholars from various disciplines shared their work and critiqued the methods and substance of these in-progress writings on race.
Co-hosted by the UCI Center on Law, Equality and Race (CLEAR), this will be the first public symposium of the project, featuring panels that offer legal and social science perspectives on various issues at the intersection of the empirical and doctrinal/critical study of race. A number of papers from this symposium and a companion working group meeting will be published in the Fall 2012 issue of the UC Irvine Law Review.
Attendance is free, but please RSVP online for catering and seating purposes.
