Member Achievement: Anjali Adukia

COSAS congratulates COSAS Member and Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, Anjali Adukia, who recently published a working paper titled, “What We Teach About Race and Gender: Representation in Images and Text of Children’s Books.” In her paper, Professor Adukia discusses her use of new machine-led methods to systematically convert images into data to better understand messages children encounter in books. This process enabled Professor Adukia and her team to examine the representation of race, gender, and age in children’s books commonly found in U.S. schools and homes over the last century.
