The Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) has invited Dr. William A. Darity to UMass to share his expertise in a special presentation.

Dr. Darity is Samuel DuBois Cook Professor of Public Policy at Duke University's Sanford School of Public Policy.  At Duke, he is also Professor of African and African American Studies and Professor of Economics.  He is an affiliate of the Duke Initiative for Science & Society and the Center for Child and Family Policy.
 
Dr. Darity’s research focuses on inequality by race, class and ethnicity, stratification economics, schooling and the racial achievement gap, North-South theories of trade and development, skin shade and labor market outcomes, the economics of reparations, the Atlantic slave trade and the Industrial Revolution, the history of economics, and the social psychological effects of exposure to unemployment.
 

Established in 1998, PERI is an independent unit of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, with close ties to the Department of Economics. PERI staff frequently work collaboratively with faculty members and graduate students from the University of Massachusetts, and other economists from around the world. Since its founding, PERI has become a leading source of research and policy initiatives on issues of globalization, unemployment, financial market instability, central bank policy, living wages and decent work, and the economics of peace, development, and the environment.
