On this episode of the Annex, we speak with James Thomas, associate professor of sociology at the University of Mississippi about his new book Diversity Regimes: Why Talk is Not Enough to Fix Racial Inequality at Universities. The book chronicles the efforts of “Diversity University” to address its legacy and ongoing practices of racial domination, highlighting how such efforts often lack coordination, focus, and institutional commitment. JT also discusses his new work on W.E.B. Du Bois and its connection to Jewish life and identity. Dr. Thomas tweets @Insurgent_Prof.
