  1. Academic Apartheid: Race and the Criminalization of Failure in an American Suburb

    March 30, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

    Join us on March 30th for a thought-provoking talk by Dr. Sean J. Drake, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Syracuse University. In "Academic Apartheid: Race and the Criminalization of Failure in an American Suburb," Drake presents an insightful analysis of longstanding educational inequality from a nuanced perspective. Drawing on over two years of ethnographic fieldwork, he unveils hidden institutional mechanisms that lead to the overt segregation and symbolic criminalization of Black, Latino, and lower-income students who struggle academically. This talk will explore how institutional definitions of success contribute to school segregation, how institutional actors leverage those definitions to justify inequality, and how local immigrant groups use their ethnic resources to succeed. Don't miss out on this interactive discussion and register today!

    This talk will be both held in the ECC (1840) and livestreamed on the frontpage of the SSW website.
