Race and Bias Conversations: Structural Racism and Health: A New Theory-Driven Empirical Approach, with Tyson H. Brown

-

Speaker(s): Tyson H. Brown, Associate Professor of Sociology
The Graduate School's 2021-2022 Race and Bias Conversations series will kick off with a discussion on anti-racism on October 28 at 3:00 p.m. Tyson H. Brown, Associate Professor of Sociology, will lead the conversation. The title of the talk is "Structural Racism and Health: A New Theory-Driven Empirical Approach." The event is open to all members of the Duke community, including alumni.

Brown directs the Center on Health & Society and was recently named Duke's inaugural Presidential Fellow. His research examines the who, when, and how of ethnoracial inequalities in health and wealth. He has authored numerous articles in leading sociology and population health journals, and his research contributions have been recognized with awards from the American Sociological Association. Brown was also the recipient of Duke University's Thomas Langford Award and was a resident fellow at Oxford University (2019-2020). In addition, he has been awarded funding for his training and research from the Robert Wood Johnson and Ford Foundations as well as the National Institutes of Health.

The Graduate School launched the Race and Bias Conversations in fall 2020 to help the Graduate School community better understand the many facets of systemic racism and bias and to keep those issues at the forefront of the community's consciousness as it works toward making Duke a more inclusive and supportive environment. Last year's series included six events featuring graduate students, faculty, administrators, and alumni, exploring topics such as desegregation of higher education in the South; policing and communities; racial economic inequality; and obstacles and opportunities for diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts in higher education.
