Carter and Merrill Contribute to Book on Social Inequality

Chief Diversity Officer and Professor of Africana Studies Donald Carter and Associate Professor of Africana Studies Heather Merrill co-authored the foreword to Geographies of Privilege (Routledge, 2013), edited by France Winddance Twine and Bradley Gardener.

Merrill said that Geographies of Privilege is “a pathbreaking book which exposes the spatial dimensions of social power and their consequences in the realm of lived experience.” She added that Duke University’s Eduardo Bonilla-Silva saluted the editors for putting together a “magnificent collection” and described  the volume as “a phenomenal addition to the literature of social stratification… that dissects how ‘space’ is not neutral, but fractured and deeply shaped by race, class, gender, legal status and other factors.”
