Director: Tali Mendelberg, Professor of Politics
The Program on Inequality, in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and the Department of Politics, hosts an annual interdisciplinary conference, during the Fall semester, on inequality and identity. The conference brings together scholars from across the nation to compare and contrast dimensions of inequality such as race, class, religion, language, or gender.
This conference is in collaboration with Identity Politics Research Group (IPRG) and co-sponsored by Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP), Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, and Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences (PRESS).
Previous paper topics have included ethnic identity and democracy across the world; the women’s suffrage movement; electoral gatekeepers and the shortage of candidates from the working class; the political legacy of Southern slavery in the United States; and how the structure of language shapes attitudes toward gender equality.
