The Scholar Is In is a new program series for the temporary exhibition RACE: Are We So Different? Visitors can meet and talk with anthropologists, scientists, historians, sociologists, and other researchers about race, science, history, and society.

On July 20th, online visitors met Dr. Elizabeth Chacko from 3-4pm. Dr. Chacko is Associate Professor of Geography and International Affairs and Chair of the Department of Geography at George Washington University.

Her recent research focuses on African and Asian immigrants to the United States and their racial, national and ethnic identities. She also studies how immigrant communities create ethnic spaces in U.S. urban centers, including the DC Metro area. In 2006, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching named Dr. Chacko the Professor of the Year from the District of Columbia.
