Register and learn more about the panelists

This academic year CRE2 is inaugurating a partnership with Northwestern University’s Program in Science in Human Culture (SHC) to co-sponsor a series of research exchanges, public panels, and scholarly presentations that focus on the intersections of race, science, and medicine. Through this partnership, members of both institutions will have opportunities to participate in events in the series that explore questions surrounding the production of scientific knowledge across the Americas, including institutional barriers, “gatekeeping,” and the construction of expertise; genomics, genetics, and understandings of race; and the roles of science in society in the present and past.

What does it mean to be in “the room where it happens”? In this fall’s virtual panel on Gatekeeping & the Publishing Landscape for Scholarship on Race, Medicine & Science, participants will explore how publication trends and directions for race-focused work in areas of science and medical research have been shaped by public conversations, the makeup of editorial boards, and field-specific debates themselves, among other sources of influence and power structures. Join us as we delve into this conversation to learn more about gatekeeping and publishing. Made possible with support from the Klopsteg Lecture Series Fund.
