Karl Jacoby

Professor of History, Columbia University

Jacoby will finish a book examining race relations along the U.S.–Mexico border. Drawing on interviews and archival research, he will analyze the distinct systems of racial classification found in the two countries despite their geographical proximity, and examine how the border shapes race relations in both countries.
