Join fellow students for a casual conversation with Destin Jenkins, Assistant Professor of History. You'll learn about Professor Jenkin's teaching and research, which explores the causes and consequences of inequality in the United States, as well as other topics like identifying your academic interests and finding research opportunities.
Speaker: Destin Jenkins is a historian of capitalism and democracy in post-Reconstruction America. He is broadly concerned with the causes and consequences of inequality, its relationship to various markets, and when, how, and why African Americans organized collectively to challenge systems of domination. Before joining the faculty at Stanford, he was the Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of History at the University of Chicago. He has held fellowships at the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University, and the Robert L. Heilbroner Center for Capitalism Studies at The New School. Jenkins offers courses on the history of capitalism, comparative race and ethnicity, African American politics, urban/suburban history, crime and punishment, and U.S. historiography.
