Approaches to Ethnic and Indigenous Studies Across the Disciplines

The Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights hosts this monthly series of informal conversations with faculty from Harvard and beyond to consider the methodological contributions that ethnic and indigenous studies make across the academic disciplines.

We understand "ethnic and indigenous studies" to refer to scholarship that analyzes the production of differences based on race, ethnicity, and nation in their relationships to sexuality, gender, religion, and more. This year's Approaches series features scholars whose work demonstrates the importance of interdisciplinarity to these inquiries.
