The Scholar Is In is a 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.

Join us for a chat with Tom Guglielmo, Associate Professor in the George Washington University’s American Studies Department. He will discuss his current research for a book tentatively titled Race War: World War II and the Crisis of American Democracy. He'll discuss his findings, including how race shaped the draft, military blood banks, and other stories in a multiracial synthesis of Americans during the war years.

Prof. Guglielmo's teaching and research interests include race and ethnic studies, immigration, and twentieth-century U.S. social, cultural, and political history. His book, White on Arrival: Italians, Race, Color, and Power in Chicago, 1890-1945, won the Allan Nevins Prize from the Society of American Historians and the Frederick Jackson Turner Award from the Organization of American Historians.
