Color violence, deadly geographies, and meanings of race …

Schwartzman_630x144

Dr. Luisa Schwartzman
Sociology, University of Toronto Mississauga

DATE: Thurs. Feb. 14, 2019
TIME: 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: SSC 6210

Triangulating three measures of "race" — self-identified “census race,” interviewer-identified skin color, and racial composition of the municipality — in conjunction with measures of class, gender and space, Luisa Schwartzman's research illuminates how racialization and "groupness" are implicated in the reproduction of violence. Dr. Schwartzman uses nationally representative survey data from Brazil to examine how “race” relates to violent victimization, and to people’s support for violent practices of social control.

All disciplines and public welcome. No RSVP required.
Arrive early for a 3:30 p.m. coffee reception in SSC 6256.

Brought to you by Centre for Research on Migration and Ethnic Relations and Department of Sociology.

Contact socevent@uwo.ca if you require information in an alternate format, or if any other arrangements can make these events accessible to you.
