Associate Professor of History at Hostos Kristopher Burrell, recently published a new essay in the online political journal Public Seminar. Burrell’s essay titled, When It Comes to Racial Justice, Why Is It Impossible to Demand the Impossible? examines social transformation and the ways in which race and class determine what is or isn’t politically “realistic."

Public Seminar is dedicated to informing debate about the pressing issues of the times and creating a global intellectual commons. It is produced by the faculty, students, and staff of The New School.

Burrell is also a contributor to Strange Careers of the Jim Crow North: Segregation and Struggle outside the South (NYU Press, 2019); Developing Educational Technology at an Urban Community College (Palgrave MacMillan, 2019), and an Associate Editor of the Ethnic Studies Review.

The essay can be found here.
Congratulations, Professor Burrell!
