Bonnie E. French is an Assistant Professor of Sociology. Her research and teaching interests center around race and racism in institutions such as schools and prisons, and on social inequalities, more generally.
Recently, Bonnie published Race at Predominantly White Independent Schools:The Space between Diversity and Equity. This book was the culmination of her research that used Critical Race Theory to examine how "diversity" can undermine progress toward equity in elite schools.
Bonnie is committed to scholarship and teaching that investigates current social issues in an effort to understand and contribute to our societies.
Forthcoming projects include research of self-identified anti-racist activists. Additionally, Bonnie has also been an active educator in prison and jail settings, and intends to pursue this important work.
