Professor  Shamus  Khan   

 Colloquium JOIN US Department of Sociology Brandeis University Thursday October 6th 3:30‐ 5:00 Pearlman Lounge Professor Shamus Khan Assistant Professor of Sociology, Columbia University (On Leave) Prof. Khan will discuss his return to his alma mater St.
Paul’s, and provide an inside look at an institution that has
been the private realm of the elite for the past 150 years.
He shows that St. Paul's students continue to learn what
they always have--how to embody privilege. Through deft
portrayals of the relationships among students, faculty,
and staff, Khan shows how members of the new elite face
the opening of society while still preserving the
advantages that allow them to rule.
