Event Description:
The Weissman School of Arts and Sciences Collaborative Faculty Grant in Sociology & Anthropology, and Black & Latino Studies invites you to a talk with Dr. Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, a Professor of Sociology at Duke University.

Professor Bonilla-Silva gained visibility in the social sciences with his 1997 American Sociological Review article, “Rethinking Racism: Toward a Structural Interpretation,” where he challenged social analysts to analyze racial matters from a structural perspective rather than from the sterile prejudice perspective.

His most recent television appearance was on the PBS election special, Race 2012. He has written several books, including White Supremacy and Racism in the Post-Civil Rights Era (co-winner of the 2002 Oliver Cox Award given by the American Sociological Association) and Racism Without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in the United States (2004 Choice Award).

Bonilla-Silva received the 2004 Lewis Coser Award for Theoretical-Agenda Setting and the 2011 Cox-Johnson-Frazier Award given by the American Sociological Association.

Location: Newman Vertical Campus, 55 Lexington Ave at 24th Street, Room 3-165
