Race, Ethnicity, Migration, Diasporas

The Race, Ethnicity, Migration, and Diasporas cluster broadly examines the movement of peoples within and beyond borders; the racial and ethnic categories and identities they inhabit, challenge, and create; racial and ethnic relations amongst and across groups; the intersections of race and ethnicity with class, gender, and sexuality; the consequences of migration; and the connections of dispersed peoples across borders. Some of us focus on one of these categories more than the others, or on one locality, group, or chronological period; some of us seek to examine multiple aspects of race, ethnicity, migration and diaspora through comparative, transnational, and global analyses that intersect with borderlands and global history. Institutional resources like the Immigration History Research Center enhance the opportunities for work in this area.
