Neoliberalizing Diversity in Higher Education

Monday, January 28, 2008

Columbia University, Schermerhorn Extension - Room 614

Presented By

Presented by Anthropology Section


Neoliberal, corporate notions of diversity have become increasingly prevalent in academic self-representation through marketing and admissions offices. Spaces of "culture" are allotted to student multicultural organizations, thereby outsourcing diversity to student groups while still providing schools with symbolic capital and drawing attention away from intransigent racial inequities in higher education.

Speaker: Bonnie Urciuoli, Hamilton College Discussant: Arlene Davila, New York University
