Aoki Center for Critical Race and Nation Studies

Welcome to the Aoki Center for Critical Race and Nation Studies. The Aoki Center is an initiative at the University of California, Davis, School of Law to honor the life and work of the late professor, Keith Aoki. Through scholarly research on the intersection of race and law, the Aoki Center draws together faculty throughout the UC Davis campus to advance the fields of civil rights, critical race theory, and immigration issues.

Fall 2017 Speaker Events

The Aoki Center sponsors Critical Perspectives on First-Year Classes, a speaker series in which King Hall faculty members introduce critical race theory to students in lunchtime presentations tailored specifically to the first-year law school curriculum.

The Aoki Center also sponsors the Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series, which brings scholars from across the UC Davis campus to King Hall every week to discuss scholarship on race, ethnicity, indigeneity, class, and immigration.
