Niambi Carter, predoctoral fellow at the University of Rochester's Center for the Study of African-American Politics, will discuss how the issue of race is studied in the United States from 12:30 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at the University of Rochester. The Work in Progress Seminar, sponsored by the Frederick Douglass Institute for African and African-American Studies, will be held in room 314 of Morey Hall on the University's River Campus. It is free and open to the public.

Carter's seminar, titled "The Right Triangle? Race and Reconfiguration in a Southern City," will deal with analyzing racial and ethnic demographics as they continue to change. "While there are needs for paradigm changes and shifts, I caution researchers to think about these issues from the perspective of those living this experience on the ground," explains Carter.

She is at work on her doctorate from the Department of Political Science at Duke University. Carter graduated summa cum laude from Temple University with a bachelor's degree and earned a master's degree at Duke. She has received several awards, including a Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship.
