A panel of leading academics discussed “Gatekeeping & the Publishing Landscape for Scholarship on Race, Medicine & Science.”

Participants explored how publication trends and directions for race-focused work in areas of science and medical research have been shaped by public conversations, the makeup of editorial boards, and field-specific debates themselves, among other sources of influence and power structures.

Panelists included:

  • Gil Eyal, professor of sociology, Columbia University
  • Tess Lanzarotta, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow, Science in Human Culture Program, Northwestern University
  • Damon Scott Tweedy, professor of psychiatry, Duke University School of Medicine
  • Yolonda Y. Wilson, associate professor in the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics, Saint Louis University
