Description

Tomás Jiménez, associate professor of sociology, focuses his research and writing on immigration, assimilation, social mobility and ethnic and racial identity. His forthcoming book, The Other Side of Assimilation: How Immigrants are Changing American Life (University of California Press, 2017), uses interviews from a race and class spectrum of Silicon Valley residents to show how a relational form of assimilation changes both newcomers (immigrants and their children) and established individuals. His book Replenished Ethnicity: Mexican Americans, Immigration, and Identity (University of California Press, 2010), draws on interviews and participant observation to understand how uninterrupted Mexican immigration influences the ethnic identity of later-generation Mexican Americans.  His research interests are immigration, qualitative methods, race and ethnicity, social inequality and stratification.
