On November 5, 2018, the Institute on Race and Justice held a faculty research seminar titled "Racial Justice vs. Racial Resentment: What to Expect from Midterm Voters in the Era of Black Lives Matter and Donald Trump." The seminar featured Dr. Kevin Drakulich, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northeastern University.
A group of twenty Northeastern faculty, IRJ Community Advisory Board members, students, and community practitioners attended this event and participated in a substantive and timely discussion on race, justice, and the midterm election. IRJ’s Faculty Research Seminar is a direct response to faculty input identifying the need for regular conversations on race and justice research that is being conducted by faculty and others across Northeastern’s campus.
