Purpose of Journal Club

This journal club is an opportunity for a group of individuals to meet regularly to critically examine recent books or articles in the academic literature that examines the concept of race as a measure of human difference and the intersection of race and health, or the social lives of American populations.

This is an interdisciplinary intellectual space in which graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff can critically examine racial statistics, ethnicity, and culture in social and behavioral research.

Additionally, the journal club is an opportunity for participants planning on using the concept of race in their research to receive feedback on their work (e.g., papers, manuscripts, or scientific aims) and career development concerns.
