Michèle Lamont viendra avec ses collaborateurs présenter le projet de recherche  intitulé « A Comparative Study of Responses to Discrimination by Members of Stigmatized Groups ». L’enjeu du séminaire est d’interroger la place possible de l’urbain dans une recherche comparative portant sur trois contextes nationaux (Etats-Unis, Brésil et Israël) qui sont aussi des contextes urbains particuliers (New York, Rio de Janiero et Tel Aviv).

Présentation du projet:

http://www.wcfia.harvard.edu/weatherhead_initiative/07_discrimination/

This international multidisciplinary project analyzes the discursive and behavioral strategies that members of stigmatized groups use to cope with racism and discrimination. We compare the accounts of these strategies produced by middle and working class men and women. We focus on members of minority groups living in mixed cities: negros in Rio de Janiero, African-Americans in New York, and Ethiopian immigrants, Mizrahis, and Muslim Palestinian citizens in Tel Aviv/Jaffa. We study how the range and salience of strategies are affected by perceived discrimination across these national contexts, by national ideologies, and other available cultural repertoires.
