Kieth Wailoo, Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of History and Director of the Center for Race and Ethnicity at Rutgers, will be the next speaker in the Center’s Distinguished Lecturer series. He has authored several books examining changes in disease patterns in America, focusing especially on the ways in which scientific and technological advances have interacted with health care politics, racial and ethnic relations, and cultural politics to inform responses to disease in the 20th century and into the 21st century. Professor Wailoo will discuss a project funded by a Robert Wood Johnson Investigator Award, The Cultural Politics of Pain: Medicine, Society and the Struggle for Relief in America. His lecture will take place at noon on November 30 in the Law School’s moot courtroom.
