Racial Foundations of Public Policy is a Fall 2021 virtual speaker series that focuses on the historical roots and impact of race in shaping public policy as both a disciplinary field and as a course of action. The series will bring in renowned scholar-experts from across the country to be in conversation with the Director of the Center for Racial Justice at the Ford School of Public Policy, Dr. Celeste Watkins-Hayes. The series is open to all members of the University of Michigan community and the wider public. Dr. Jennifer Lee, an award winning author and frequent public commentator on the implications of contemporary U.S. immigration, will join us virtually to discuss the racial foundations of immigration and public policy. Dr. Lee is the Julian Clarence Levi Professor of Social Science at Columbia University. Professor Lee’s research addresses the implication of contemporary U.S. immigration-particularly Asian immigration- on the native born population. She has studied this from a variety of analytical lenses, including immigrant entrepreneurship and ethnic conflict, intermarriate and multiracial identification, educational opportunities and outcomes, and affirmative action and the rise in anti-Asian hate.
