Declining White Life Expectancies: The Result of Despair or “Freedom”
Dr. Carolyn Rouse
Ritter Professor of Anthropology at Princeton University
President of American Ethnological Society
Dr. Carolyn Rouse will discuss her research on declining life expectancy among white Americans in rural California. This work expands upon her long-standing research on health disparities, deepening her examination of the use of evidence to make particular claims about race and social inequality.
Dr. Rouse’s contribution to understanding race and inequality is exemplified in her books which include Engaged Surrender: African American Women and Islam; Uncertain Suffering: Racial Healthcare Disparities and Sickle Cell Disease; and Televised Redemption: Black Religious Media and Racial Empowerment.
