The Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity is most pleased to announce four groups of fellows selected for 2009-2010.
External Faculty Fellows are faculty from other universities who share a comparative, multidisciplinary and multiracial approach to the study of race, ethnicity and culture.
