Program on Inequality

The Program on Inequality is led by Director, Tali Mendelberg, John Work Garrett Professor of Politics. This program organizes events that enhance research on inequality and politics. Of note, the program organizes the Race, Ethnicity and Identity (REI) workshop in which Princeton faculty present cutting-edge work and receive feedback early in the publication process. This year research was presented for discussion by Jacob Grumbach, visiting fellow for the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and LaFleur Stephens-Dougan, Assistant Professor of Politics.

The Program on Inequality hosts an annual interdisciplinary conference, during the Fall semester, on inequality and identity. Most recently, the program organized the fourth annual Princeton conference on Identity and Inequality, organized by Director Tali Mendelberg and co-organized by Assistant Professor Omar Wasow. The conference brings together scholars from across the nation to compare and contrast dimensions of inequality such as race, class, religion, language, or gender. This conference is in collaboration with Identity Politics Research Group  (IPRG) and co-sponsored by Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP), Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, and Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences (PRESS).
