Director's Message

Greetings and Welcome to CSREA,

At the heart of the possibility for creating a just world lies the quality and depth of our understanding about the histories and present day formations of race, ethnicity and indigenous communities.  

Brown University is an ideal home for taking on these important concerns. Students and faculty consistently embrace interdisciplinary collaboration and many exhibit a strong investment in generating ideas that resonate beyond the academy.

CSREA is excited to be a hub at Brown and beyond for the study and reflection on race and ethnicity in America. Prioritizing race and ethnicity as core research areas across various disciplines enables and intensifies our ability to develop new ideas, raise new questions and hopefully generate more useful answers.
