"Meet the Neighbors: Immigrant Political Incorporation in Suburbia"
Speaker Michael Jones-Correa is professor of government at Cornell University. He is the co-author of "Latino Lives in American: Making It Home" (Temple 2010), the author of "Between Two Nations: The Political Predicament of Latinos in New York City" (Cornell, 1998) and the editor of "Governing American Cities: Interethnic Coalitions, Competition, and Conflict" (Russell Sage Foundation, 2001), as well as the author of more than two dozen articles and chapters on immigration, race, ethnicity and citizenship in the United States.
Jones-Correa is currently working on several major projects, among them one looking at increasing ethnic diversity of suburbs, and its implication for local and national politics; another continuing the analysis of the 2006 Latino National Survey, a national state-stratified survey of Latinos in the United States for which he was a principal investigator; and collaborative research on inter-ethnic relations in new immigrant-receiving areas in the United States. He is the team leader for the 2010-2013 theme project "Immigrant: Settlement, Immigration and Membership," at the Institute for the Social Sciences at Cornell.
Lunch included. The talk will be followed by an informal conversation with Professor Jones-Correa over refreshments.
