- “We Gotta Walk That Line”: How an ‘Atypical Family’ Negotiates Race and Religion to ‘Become’ Diverse.–ZSR Library, Library Auditorium (Room 404)Jelani Ince (’14) is a doctoral candidate in sociology at Indiana University, Bloomington. His research interests concern the areas of race, culture, and organizations. His dissertation investigates how interactions shape people’s understandings of how to navigate institutional myths. In the last few decades scholars have focused on integrated organizations to examine how different racial groups engage in these spaces. However, interactions are rarely highlighted in discussions of how these organizations continue to enable, or fight against, racial segregation. Based on data collected from an ethnography of a religious organization, this study focuses on how members work in conflict and in concert with each other to pursue racial diversity. Members have to wade through institutionalized myths about their religious beliefs, which are marked by the pernicious legacies of the U.S.’ racial history, with the practical outworking of those beliefs in interaction with each other. He argues that a focus on these interactions is important for understanding how organizations work and why the challenges people face in interactions matter for organizational outcomes.
