Center for New Racial Studies

The UC Center for New Racial Studies, a multicampus research project directed by Howard Winant, officially launches in the 2010-2011 academic year.

The UCCNRS has initially been funded for five academic years.  The Center is based in UCSB's Institute for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research and includes faculty representatives from all ten UC campuses.  Its goal is to network and develop research on race and racism across the UC system and beyond.

With its five-year grant of $1.73m, the primary mission of the UCCNRS is to support research on race and racism by faculty and graduate students throughout the UC system.  The Center is also helping UC people to organize conferences and symposia, speakers' series and working groups, and policy-oriented/community-oriented projects.
