Posted: 6/4/2019 (CSDE Research)

CSDE is co-sponsoring a conference that explores the historical, political, and social aspects of the US Census. The Keynote lecture (tomorrow, 6/5/2019, 6:30 PM) will feature G. Cristina Mora, Kim Williams, and Nazita Lajevardi on the historical and political impacts of the Census. On Thursday (6/6/2019, 4:30 PM), a number of panels will speak to specific challenges of the 2020 Census. CSDE Affiliate Kate Stovel, Sociology, is moderating a roundtable on “The Importance of Census Data” (10:30 AM), in which CSDE Director Sara Curran, Sociology and International Studies, will speak about differential privacy.

The goal of this conference is to not only learn, but to collaboratively find ways to speak back to the Census. Please register here. The Conference is at the Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center, and it is free and open to the public. Please bring food and toiletry items to support Any Hungry Husky. They meet a vital need in our community.
