Please join us in welcoming Elijah Anderson, acclaimed sociologist and ethnographer, to discuss his book, The Cosmopolitan Canopy: Race and Civility in Everyday Life.

Elijah Anderson is the William K. Lanman, Jr. Professor of Sociology at Yale
University. His publications include Code of the Street: Decency, Violence, and
the Moral Life of the Inner City (1999), winner of the Komarovsky Award from
the Eastern Sociological Society; Streetwise: Race, Class, and Change in an
Urban Community (1990), winner of the American Sociological Association's
Robert E. Park Award for the best published book in the area of Urban
Sociology; and the classic sociological work, A Place on the Corner (1978;
2nd ed., 2003). Anderson's most recent ethnographic work, The Cosmopolitan
Canopy: Race and Civility in Everyday Life, was published by WW Norton in
2011. Professor Anderson is the recipient of two prestigious awards from the
American Sociological Association: the 2013 Cox-Johnson-Frazier Award and
the 2018 W.E.B. DuBois Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award, as well
as the 2017 Merit Award from the Eastern Sociological Society.

In his talk, Anderson will illuminate the public life of an American city, offering a major reinterpretation of the racial dynamics in America. He introduces the concept of the "cosmopolitan canopy": the urban islands of civility amid segregated ghettos, suburbs, and ethnic enclaves.

A reception and book signing will follow.

Thursday, September 27 at 7 p.m.
