On the Same Page: The Diversity and Inclusion Book Committee
See what book this year's student-led committee chose.
It's official: The Diversity and Inclusion Book Committee, organized by the Transformative Inquiry (TID) department, has announced this year's book selection:
Gender, Development, and Globalization: Economics as if All People Mattered, 2nd Edition, by Lourdes Beneria (Cornell University), Günseli Berik (University of Utah), and Maria Floro (American University) (Routledge, 2015).
Each year, the student-led committee selects a book that department students, faculty, and staff are invited to read. The committee announces the book at the August intensive, and participants read it during the Fall semester. A symposium on the book is held on the final day of the January intensive.
According to this year's chair, student Katharine Ransom, who is in TID's Ph.D. program, "The goal of the committee is to enhance the diversity of the TID reading material. It's also a way to unite the department in a common goal."
Books selected in past years:
Along with committee chair Ransom, student members include Elisa Boots (TLD), Charles "Chip" McNeal (TSD), Elizabeth Krasnoff (TSD), Serena Cheng (TSD), and Danielle Caminneci (TLD).
Joanne Gozawa and Daniel Deslauriers are the committee's faculty facilitators.
