The Center for Ethnic Studies (CES) brings together three units for collaboration and cooperation in research, programming, teaching and student support:
Historically, these academic programs came into being in higher education as the result of civil rights movements that advocated not only for equality for these groups throughout society, but also for a wider societal understanding of the complex histories, experiences, literatures, arts and cultures of these diverse populations.
CES continues in this tradition by working to expand what all of us can know about the nexus of racial, ethnic, cultural, gender and sexual difference through research and teaching. As interdisciplinary programs, we include faculty and students from many fields and colleges at Ohio State. In addition to research and teaching, our faculty and students are involved in community education and outreach efforts as well as collaborative projects in humanities and performance research, forging new pathways in higher education.
