Center for the Study of Social Difference Featured In The Record

A recent article by Columbia University newspaper The Record highlights the Center for the Study of Social Difference (CSSD) and its decade long commitment to supporting research on the effects of gender, race and other areas of inequality in a global context. The article describes the center as a "home for faculty from across the University to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects that come up with creative, progressive solutions to those problems."

The article, which is published in the tenth anniversary year of CSSD and the fifth anniversary of CSSD initiative Women Creating Change, features comments from current CSSD Director Marianne Hirsch, who discusses the importance of asking questions in a global comparative frame and collaborating closely with Columbia’s Global Centers.

The newspaper also highlights the Center's 10th Anniversary symposium, "What We CAN Do When There’s Nothing to Be Done: Strategies for Change," featuring discussions about protests and social movements, migrants and refugees, and the role of the arts in political activism.
