CRRES Postdoctoral Scholar, 2017-2020
Denia Garcia is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Indiana University. She received her Ph.D. in Sociology from Princeton University in 2017. Her research interests include race/ethnicity, urban sociology, political sociology, and organizations. She is currently working on a book manuscript based on a three-year ethnography of a multiethnic neighborhood in Chicago, which speaks to ongoing debates about the consequences of ethnic/racial diversity for social relations and civic participation. She has also examined how social cues influence the perception of race and skin color, racial attitudes, and social capital among urban families using survey and experimental data.
