SAGE-CASBS Award lecture

As the age of Donald Trump commences, this lecture by 2017 SAGE-CASBS Award recipient William Julius Wilson will revisit the fundamental sociological proposition that racial/ethnic antagonisms are products of situations — economic, political, and social situations. In the process, Wilson will examine the growing association between income inequality and income segregation, elucidate how this relationship is exacerbated by racial segregation, and then consider the impact of exclusionary populist messages, as opposed to those that are inclusive. Wilson will conclude by returning to his book The Bridge Over the Racial Divide: Rising Inequality and Coalition Politics (1999) to consider the theoretical basis for future intergroup cooperation.
