A Conversation on Difference and Diversity: Asking the difficult questions (again)

With this new conversation series, we want to ‘open diversity’ by building bridges across scholarly perspectives and voices, and welcome critical or polemical takes. The first ‘conversation’ features two panels of CBS researchers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and whose work connects in various ways to the concepts of diversity and difference. Please reach out to us if you are interested to be a speaker next time.
