About the Series: IRRPP's Intracollege Lunchtime Lecture Series provides brief but substantive overviews of the research on race, ethnicity, and public policy being produced by UIC scholars and funded by IRRPP. The panelists will discuss their projects, explore the connections between them, and use their work as a way to interrogate the themes in race research that cut across disciplinary lines. Lunch is provided.
