      Fr-Sa Sept 7-8 10a-6pm Interdisciplinary SIG Free Conference
      `Racing the Republic: Ethnicity and Inequality in France in American
      and World Perspective'
      An international and interdisciplinary conference
      at the University of California, Berkeley
      Organized by:
      Loïc Wacquant (Sociology, UC-Berkeley), Tyler Stovall
      (History, UC-Berkeley), and Heddy Riss (Program Director,
      Center on Institutions and Governance, IGS UC-Berkeley)

      Lipman Room, Barrows Hall, UC Berkeley

      Questions of ethnoracial division (linked to slavery, colonial rule,
      and/or immigration), citizenship, and politics loom large today not
      only in the United States but also in many other advanced nations.
      None is perhaps more urgently concerned with these issues today
      than France. And none provides a more fruitful comparative case with
      the United States, since the two republics share a germane commitment
      to the democratic ideal and a common claim to embody civic
      universality. The conference will examine the complex and covert
      relationships between race (as denegated species of ethnicity) and
      the
      republic in France in American and world-historical perspective.
