"At the beginning, when you're a student, you don't think of what you're doing here at the University as producing knowledge," says Michael Jones-Correa, President's Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Immigration (CSERI). "You think of it as learning by absorbing what other people have written or what other people have produced. Part of what a university does that is so important is actually teach people how to produce knowledge themselves."
The graduate and undergraduate student fellows at CSERI produced original research that contributes to their fields of study, including political science, Africana studies, history, law, and education. Here, Michael John, C'20; Archana Upadhyay, C’20; and Kimberly Cárdenas, a doctoral student, share their work.
