Michèle Lamont studies group boundaries to understand how we can create a more inclusive world.
Professor Lamont's research shows how judgments about morality are used to validate all kinds of exclusion, and how shared views on "who matters" shape social hierarchies. Her wide-ranging work dives deeply into an examination of, say, how members of stigmatized groups respond to rejection or the role culture plays in poverty.
She is Professor of Sociology and of African and African American Studies and the Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies at Harvard University.
Rhonda Powell, '89 will be moderating this off-the-record, unrecorded Zoom event.
