Whitney Dow will be giving a presentation about his “Whiteness Project” on February 15th at 5 p.m. in Education 212. Dow is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose current focus is on the Whiteness Project, a story-based interactive media and research project he is producing in collaboration with Columbia University’s Interdisciplinary Center for Innovative Theory and Empirics (INCITE). The project, which will ultimately include 1,000 subjects from communities across the United States, examines how Americans who identify as “white” or “partially white”, process their ethnicity, and pairs it with secondary quantitative data — attitudinal, socioeconomic and genomic — collected by a team from INCITE. Dow and his work has been featured in dozens of broadcast networks, radio, print and online publications including NPR’s All Things Considered, CBS This Morning, The Oprah Winfrey Show and as a regularly appearing commentator on MSNBC’s AM Joy.
