Race, politics and census explored, March 26

"Whos Afraid of the Undercount? Race, Politics and the Census," is the title of a lecture to be presented at 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 26, in Bowl 2, Robertson Hall.

Peter Skerry, associate professor of government at Claremont McKenna College and nonresident senior fellow in governmental studies at the Brookings Institution, will give the address. His research at the Brookings Institution focuses on immigration policy and the politics of the U.S. Census.

Skerry's writings on politics, racial and ethnic issues, immigration and social policy have appeared in a variety of scholarly and general interest publications. His most recent book is "Counting on the Census? Race, Group Identity and the Evasion of Politics," published last year by the Brookings Institution Press.

The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Survey Research Center.
