Race and Wealth Disparity in 21st
The Warren Center and the Vanderbilt Law School are cosponsoring a
research circle entitled Race and Wealth Disparity in 21st Century
America. This year-long project is funded by the Ford Foundation
to help build interdisciplinary connections throughout the University.
Members of the Vanderbilt faculty from throughout the University and
representing a broad range of disciplines will produce a series of public
lectures and a set of edited teaching materials on how various disciplines
look at race and wealth disparities in the United States. The project
will begin in January 2002 and run through December 2002.
The program is directed by Professor of Law Beverly Moran, who is a
tax scholar and has also worked in comparative law and law and society.
She joined Vanderbilt in 2001, having previously taught at the University
of Wisconsin Law School where she directed the Center for Law and Africa.
Her most recent publications include an edited set of essays on the
Clinton scandal for the New York University Press, and a series of publications
on the racial implications of the U.S. income tax system in the University
of Wisconsin Law Review, the University of North Carolina Law
Review, and the University of Arkansas Little Rock Law Review.
Participants in the program include Bruce Barry, associate professor
of management and associate professor of sociology; Tony Brown, assistant
professor of sociology; Dan Cornfield, professor of sociology; Edward
Fischer, assistant professor of anthropology; James Foster, professor
of economics; Dennis Kezar, assistant professor of English; Benjamin
Radcliff, associate professor of political science; Cecelia Tichi, William
B. Kenan, Jr., Professor of English; and Kenneth Wong, professor of
public policy and education and professor of political science.
