Ann Morning

Associate Professor of Sociology, New York University

Morning (working with Marcello Maneri) will complete a book comparing the ways that Americans and Italians assess group differences such as race and nationality. She will look at how national conceptions of culture and biology shape individuals’ beliefs about what distinguish ethnic groups from one another. She finds that due to increasing non-white immigration to the U.S., Americans’ conceptions of racial difference are coming to resemble those held by Italians and other Western Europeans.
