Ruth J. Simmons Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Center’s work is organized around the following seminar series:

This seminar is for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other scholars affiliated with or working alongside the CSSJ to come together to think critically about the legacies of slavery and boundaries of freedom across time and space.
The Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice facilitates a year-long reading group which focuses on examining the Carceral State.
This interdisciplinary seminar organized by Brown faculty is open to faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and advanced graduate students from any department. Each year, a faculty fellow is selected to lead the seminar based on a proposed theme.
