Center for Race & Ethnicity in Sport
Race and ethnicity are complex phenomena that exert a profound, yet often subtle impact on human behavior, including behaviors related to sport. C-RAES (as the acronym suggests) seeks to employ interdisciplinary lenses to allow individuals to 'see race' and ethnicity in varied manifestations in sport. It will illuminate the social psychology of race and ethnicity, and the intersections with sex/gender, social class, nationality, age, and other cultural identities that impact the production, management, and consumption of sport.
