The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is committed to promoting the values of diversity, equity, and human rights and to confronting racism in our fields of research, our institution, and our classrooms.
As part of these efforts and to support our students, colleagues, and communities, we have compiled a broad range of resources, reading and media recommendations that reflect the varied and heterogeneous perspectives of our two disciplines.
