On The Web


Vilna Bashi Treitler is Professor and Chair of the Department of Black and Latino Studies at Baruch College, and Professor in the Sociology Program at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She is the author of two books: (1) The Ethnic Project: (2013) explains that racial thinking persists (even though we have known for 100 years that races don’t exist) because ethnic groups’ struggles for better status actually shore up rather than dismantle society’s racism, and (2) Survival of the Knitted: (2007) explains how helping networks aid migrants in surviving and thriving around the globe. She is also an artist, mother, wife, and gluten-free baker.
