Our department is home to the Centre for Research in Race and Rights, and our research in this area is internationally renowned.
We co-lead the University's Research Priority Area on Rights and Justice. We have a strong focus on global public engagement that challenges all forms of racism, discrimination and human rights violation.
We have particular strengths in Black Studies, Latino Studies and Asian-American Studies, and work extensively with national and international research partners.
