TOPIC: Cultural Identity: A Sociological and Anthropological Perspective

Jay Williams, Ph.D., from Hamline University will present on racial and ethnic identity in the USA. He has done extensive research on the historical, social, and cultural factors that contribute to identity development and the consequences of the confluence of those various identities in the US.

Jay McKay Williams, Ph.D., is a Princeton University, and University of Chicago trained scholar. His training methods are a blend of rational and emotional approaches, challenging participants to not only think of themselves within the broader context of American culture but to think about the perspectives of those around them. His training and facilitation experience includes working with members of national service teams, government agencies, non-profit organizations, universities, civic organizations, and youth programs, predominately in the Washington, D.C. and Chicago areas. Currently, he teaches Sociology, Anthropology, and other courses in the social sciences.
