RITM Faculty Fellows have focused on projects such as nineteenth-century African American women’s history; race in Cuba and the Dominican Republic; trans-Pacific Asian American literatures; the racialization of Islam; and other topics. RITM also supports Yale faculty members through Course Enrichment funding for teaching and research. Our faculty-led Working Groups bring faculty and graduate students together to advance interdisciplinary scholarship related to race, indigeneity, and transnational migration.
The Faculty Fellows program fosters and supports an interdisciplinary group of scholars at various stages of their careers selected from the Yale community.
RITM offers funding to faculty for bringing guest lecturers to campus, organizing conferences and symposia, and other scholarly endeavors.
Meeting regularly throughout the academic year, RITM faculty-led working groups advance interdisciplinary scholarship in areas of historical and contemporary importance.
