race and ethnicity, migration, national identity, citizenship
San Diego State University
My research looks at how immigrants and racial and ethnic minorities relate to their national identity and the nation they currently live in. I am particularly interested in how national and cultural frameworks and philosophies influence how migrants and racial and ethnic minorities feel they belong to the nation. I am also interested in public opinions regarding issues relating to immigration and racism, specifically support for anti-racist policies and immigration initiatives. My current research looks at the effects of ethnoracial identity and skin color on levels of national pride in Latin America.
