ISPS Center for the Study of Inequality: “Deconstructing Ferguson” Working Group (By Invitation Only)
Friday, May 8, 2015 - 12:00pm through 10:00pm
This event is by special invitation only and not open to the general public.
The Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School and the ISPS Center for the Study of Inequality at Yale University are co-sponsors in a multi-displinary endeavor that aims to understand one of the key issues of our time, namely, how citizens experience state institutions and how that experience shapes identity, inequality, and membership. Deconstructing Ferguson: How Social Institutions, Policy, and Law Shape American Civic Identity and Experience is a working group of scholars from several fields who are experts in some aspect of the connection between states, citizens, and civic identity. The task will be to offer an analysis of the many interrelated structures that resulted in such a jarring series of events in one city that reflect, outrageously, ubiquitous features of American society.
