Dr. David G. Embrick, Founding Co-Editor of the American Sociological Association’s journal, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will be visiting Mt Carmel campus to discuss his research on museums as racialized spaces that help maintain White normativity and supremacy, as well as Whites' sense of power, belonging, and entitlement within racialized societies. Using three internationally respected museums as collaborative ethnographic case studies (Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the Museo Nacional d'Art de Cataluna), Dr. Embrick will discuss his findings and how these reveal the racial mechanisms by which these spaces create and maintain themselves as exclusive White sanctuaries within the context of being an institution for the public.
