Events & News

CID strives to make inequality research more readily accessible; some of the ways we do this is through hosting events and sharing our stories. You can read more about CID, our affiliates, and new projects in our News section. You can also follow us on Twitter (@umichCID) for the latest information.

CID really started coming online just as the pandemic hit. As the rest of the world, we had to adapt our plans for a virtual environment. In Fall 2020 we launched the Virtual Inequality Brownbag series that aimed to help graduate students make connections and gain valuable feedback on their early-stage work.

You can check out our upcoming events to see what we have on the horizon.
