Three Vanderbilt sociology doctoral students (Rachel Zajdel, Darwin Baluran, and Meagan Rainock) have been named “Curb Center Researchers” for their work on a National Endowment for the Arts-funded research project associated with the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise, and Public Policy. The students are working with Professor Dan Cornfield and Professor Alexandre Frenette on a project analyzing how the characteristics and practices of over 500 local arts agencies (LAA) in the United States help or hinder the pursuit of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The researchers draw on LAA survey data collected by the project’s organizational partner, Americans for the Arts.
