Dr. Prudence Carter is the Sarah and Joseph Jr. Dowling Professor of Sociology at Brown University. From 2016-2021, Carter was the E.H. and Mary E. Pardee Professor and Dean of the Graduate School of Education at the University of California at Berkeley. Carter's research focuses on forces behind enduring inequalities in education and society and their potential solutions. Specifically, she examines academic and mobility disparities shaped by the effects of race, ethnicity, class, and gender in the United States and global society. Her books include the award-winning Keepin’ It Real: School Success beyond Black and White; Stubborn Roots: Race, Culture, and Inequality in U.S. & South African Schools; and Closing the Opportunity Gap: What America Must Do to Give Every Child an Even Chance, co-edited with Dr. Kevin Welner. Carter is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Education, Sociological Research Association, and the American Education Research Association. Professor Carter is the 2022-23 President of the American Sociological Association.

This annual lecture series was established by Dr. Raymond Hakim in honor of his late wife, Catherine McLaughlin Hakim ’70. A sociology major at Emmanuel, Catherine studied under longtime sociology professor Sister Marie Augusta Neal, SNDdeN, who left an especially indelible mark on her student experience. The lecture series commemorates Catherine’s life, her fondness for Emmanuel, and the relationships she formed at the College and continued to maintain throughout her life.

The event is open to all students and alumni. Sponsored by the Emmanuel College Department of Sociology, the Catherine McLaughlin Hakim ’70 Lecture Series focuses on issues of sociology, social justice and public policy on the local, national and international levels.

Virtual attendees will recieve Zoom information upon registration. Registration is free with a suggested donation of $25 to the Emmanuel Fund.
