New Utopias: Can We Heal the Wounds of the Past?

Recent debates over racism and inequality highlight the enduring impact of past wrongs and historical injustices on social relations today. A renewed focus on systemic racism reveals the degree to which the legacy of prejudice and discrimination continues to shape political institutions and power relations today. What are the long-term effects of racism on human behavior and social structures? How can the trauma of discrimination be overcome? How can societies rebuild trust with communities that have suffered and continue to suffer egregious injustices?

In order to address these questions, the Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the European Institute, and the Alliance Program, brought together an international panel of experts to propose diverse perspectives on these issues.

Moderator: Mirna Safi, Professor of Sociology, Sciences Po

Panelists:

  • Soulaymane Bachir Diagne, Professor of French and Philosophy, Columbia University

  • Sarah Gensburger, Research Professor in Political Science and History, CNRS

  • Courtney Cogburn, Associate Professor of Social Work, Columbia University
