Barbara & Michael Newmark Endowed Sociology Lecture on Pluralism: Ian Haney López

You are cordially invited to join the Department of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis for the presentation of the inaugural event of its newly established lecture series.

This lectureship honors Barbara and Michael Newmark, alumni and longtime community leaders in St. Louis. The series supports visits to Washington University in St. Louis by scholars whose work engages with the concept of a pluralistic society where diverse religious, racial and ethnic groups live and work together, and their differences enhance the community.

Event is free and open to the public. ​Please feel free to share with those who may be of interest.
