Welcome to the

Politics of

Race and

Ethnicity Lab

The Politics of Race and Ethnicity Lab brings together a network of scholars interested in Race and Ethnic politics.

What is PRE ?

The Politics of Race and Ethnicity (PRE) Lab at the University of Texas at Austin is home to a cluster of scholars interested in race and ethnic politics. We do research on racial discrimination, language policies, religious nationalism, policing and criminal justice, state bureaucracies, immigration attitudes, and right-wing voting—amongst others. We study these topics from both an American context and a global perspective—while leveraging our comparative advantage with being in Texas. 

Please check out our website to learn more about the members of the lab, our ongoing projects, and the courses we offer including a practicum for undergraduates.
