On March 23, over 70 people packed the UMass Campus Center’s Hadley Room to launch a week’s discussions on how methodological innovation in social science can, and does, offer scholars committed to racial justice a range of pathways for advancing the cause. The week's first event featured a panel on the use of social science research methods to push the boundaries of knowledge on race and power, which included Fredrick Harris (Political Science, Columbia University), Linda Tropp (Psychological and Brain Sciences, UMass Amherst), and Dawn Dow (Sociology /Syracuse University).
