What is the Race and Difference Initiative?

 

The Race and Difference Initiative (RDI) seeks to promote understanding of and to generate new knowledge about race and other forms of human difference (class, gender, religion, and sexuality), in particular the way they intersect in our complex and rapidly diversifying society. We are interested in how social differences intersect at the level of individual identity as well as how these systems of social distinction shape modes of knowing, processes of inclusion and exclusion, acts of representation, and organizational practices. We support research and educational programs developed by Emory's faculty and students that examine the interpaly of race and difference.

 

Who is involved?

 

A network of interdisciplinary faculty and students within and beyond the university campus.

What kinds of research does RDI sponsor?

 

RDI supports projects that will enhance research activity bearing directly on race and intersecting dimensions of human difference. Specifically, we sponsor research that investigates how social differences intersect at the level of individual identity as well as research that explores how these systems of social distinction shape modes of knowing, processes of inclusion and exclusion, acts of representation, and organizational practices.  

 

Are funds available to support faculty or graduate student research related to race and difference?

 

Yes, each year we support faculty and graduate student research through our RDI Seed Grant Program (see "research and publications" link above).
