Bentley University’s 2019 Research Colloquium will focus on Social Justice and Inequality: Barriers, Mechanisms, and Remedies. The colloquium will showcase a broad intersection of research topics and approaches by Bentley faculty and PhD students. It will bring together Bentley faculty, staff, and students with key members of external stakeholder groups to highlight Bentley’s research within this important topic area, to identify synergies and collaboration opportunities, and to further develop Bentley’s research agenda related to social in/justice. The three tracks of the colloquium will be Barriers, Mechanisms, and Remedies.
The event will start with a luncheon and opening keynote address by Prof. Saher Selod from Simmons University. Prof. Selod studies Islamophobia and systematic discrimination against Muslim Americans; and even more interestingly, the intersectionality of religion, gender, and racialization. She is a member of the Scholars Strategy Network and is an affiliate if Islamophobia Studies Project at UC Berkley. Her new book has just released: Forever Suspect: Racialized Surveillance of Muslim Americans in the War on Terror. The sessions in the afternoon will feature research by Bentley's faculty and doctoral students. The day will end with a reception at 5pm.
