CSER Undergraduate Symposium


The annual CSER Undergraduate Research Symposium brings together students from across the social sciences and humanities to present undergraduate theses or research in progress on issues related to the critical study of ethnicity and race. This symposium draws together the work of students on various topics that cover an impressive breadth of scholarship concerned with the ways in which the concepts of race and ethnicity are theorized and experienced.

CSER continues to be Columbia's main interdisciplinary space for the study of ethnicity and race and their implications for thinking about culture, power, hierarchy, social identities, and political communities. The Center also offers a wide range of public programming, including Artist at the Center, Indigenous Forum, and Latino Public Speaker Series and the Transnational Asian/American Speaker Series. CSER's most recent spaces include the Media and Idea Lab and Gallery at the Center, a space dedicated to curating artistic and thematic exhibits around the Center’s key areas of interest.
