Interests: Social Inequalities, Immigration, Race and Ethnicity, Urban Studies, Mexico and Caribbean

Projects: My most recent book, Churches and Charity in the Immigrant City (Rutgers U Press, 2009) is an application of social capital theory to religious congregations. My previous work in general has been on immigrants, established residents, and power. With Carol Dutton Stepick I am writing a comprehensive review and revision of segmented assimilation theory. In Portland, my goal is to help the Sociology Department develop a research focus on Portland that examines immigration, ethnicity, and power. I am also working on a revision and update of my first book, Social Inequality in Oaxaca (Temple U Press, 1991).
