Politics of Race, Immigration, and Ethnicity Consortium (PRIEC) - 35th Meeting | October 18, 2013

Center for the Study of Race, Politics & Culture - 5733 S. University Ave, 1st Floor Event Space

The Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture (CSRPC) at the University of Chicago (U of C) is excited to host the 35th meeting of the Politics of Race, Immigration, and Ethnicity Consortium (PRIEC) this fall (October 18th). PRIEC can best be described as a CSRPC Workshop that condenses a quarter of presentations into a single day.  Traditionally PRIEC meetings have been a regional fixture in Southern California at the University of California, Riverside; site of its institutional home.  However, with the increase of new faculty and graduate students that probe questions concerning race, immigration, and ethnicity, PRIEC has also broadened its scope and made itself more accessible to universities across the western hemisphere from Washington to Arizona and New Mexico.  The consortium’s main requirement is that research projects focus on some aspect of politics.  PRIEC is open to all disciplines and research methodologies. Karthick Ramakrishnan, Associate Professor of Political Science at University of California, Riverside,  has cultivated an environment where graduate students at any stage and faculty from every rank can come together and provide thoughtful feedback to experts in the field. PRIEC’s meeting at the U of C offers graduate students and faculty another forum to address questions that focus on immigration and its correlation to race and ethnicity in conversation with top scholars in the field.
