THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF SOCIAL DIFFERENCE
The Center for the Study of Social Difference is an interdisciplinary research center supporting collaborative projects that address gender, race, sexuality, and other forms of inequality to foster ethical and progressive social change.
The Center’s work has two overarching research themes
Women Creating Change engages distinguished feminist scholars from diverse fields throughout Columbia University who focus on contemporary global problems affecting women and on the roles women play in addressing these problems.
Imagining Justice brings together scholars, activists, and artists on projects that envision new ways of fighting inequality and promoting gender, racial, economic, and environmental justice in global and domestic contexts.
The Center for the Study of Social Difference (CSSD) is highlighted in the university's monthly newspaper The Record on its tenth anniversary.
