  • Race and Wealth Disparity in 21st Century America

    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.
