Wednesday, February 8, 2012
6 PM
Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

This presentation examines the challenges faced by recent race-based affirmative action policies in private and public universities in a country with marked racial inequalities but nebulous color and identity lines and no history of dual, legally-enforced racial categories.

Marcia Lima is a professor of sociology at the University of São Paulo and Visiting Scholar at ILAS-Columbia University. She is currently coordinating a large research project on inclusion policies and affirmative action in the "University for All" program.
