- This event has passed.
Massive and unprecedented political uprisings in the wake of the murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd have led to more critical engagement with the idea, possibility and promise of police abolition. The Politics of Race, Immigration, Class and Ethnicity (PRICE) Initiative has brought together a panel of leading scholars and activists to engage in depth about race, freedom and abolition. Featuring Beth Riche, Alex Vitale and Derecka Purnell.
The Politics of Race, Immigration, Class & Ethnicity (PRICE) Initiative works to expand and enrich research, teaching, and engagement around the topics of race, immigration, class and ethnicity. PRICE creates and supports opportunities for collaborative intellectual exchange between faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in the department of Government at Cornell University, while also extending across and beyond Cornell to advance a larger effort to strengthen research, catalyze engagement, and support collaboration among those whose scholarship examines race, immigration, class, ethnicity and the various critical intersections between and within them.
