What do we do?

We study identities, inequalities, and communities from a variety of perspectives and methodologies. In ways that link social structure, social processes, and social forces with lived experiences, we emphasize inter-disciplinarity and fluidity across social, historical, economic, and cultural contexts. Our local, regional, national, and international research sites yield research that is relevant far beyond the local community.
