Incidental Racialization: A Talk on Systemic Inequalities Faced by Asian and Latino Law Students



Dr. Yung-Yi Diana Pan (Assistant Professor of Sociology, Brooklyn College, City University of New York) will talk about the research from her recent book, Incidental Racialization: Performative Assimilation in Law School (Temple University Press, 2017), which focuses on the systemic inequalities that are produced and sustained in law schools and how they affect Asian and Latino students. This talk will bring light to the larger issue of how systemic inequalities persist in higher and professional educational institutions (and society) as a whole, and will give the Penn community the opportunity to critically think about how to safeguard against such a phenomenon.

This event is sponsored by Penn’s Campaign for Community, and co-sponsored by the Department of Sociology, Asian American Studies (ASAM), and Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS). Lunch will be served, and a limited number of Dr. Pan’s book will be given away first-come, first served.
