The Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice is proud to announce the new Program on Inequality, led by Tali Mendelberg, Professor of Politics. Professor Mendelberg is a specialist on political communication, gender, race, class, public opinion, political psychology and experimental methods. She is the author of The Race Card: Campaign Strategy, Implicit Messages, and the Norm of Equality (Princeton University Press, 2001), for which she received the American Political Science Association’s Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award for “the best book published in the United States during the prior year on government, politics or international affairs.”More recently, her book cowritten with Chris Karpowitz The Silent Sex: Gender, Deliberation and Institutions (Princeton University Press, 2014) has been awarded the 2015 David O. Sears Book Award from the International Society of Political Psychology.
The Program on Inequality will foster a community of scholars who are focused on all aspects of inequality such as race, class, gender, religion, historical discrimination, and language, and their impact on self-determination, attitudes and governance within the United States and internationally.
The Workshop on Race, Ethnicity and Identity will in future be run as part of this program.
The program is teaming with the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics to host a conference in the fall.
