James Thomas

Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Mississippi

Thomas will examine beliefs about Whiteness among White Southerners who came of age amidst the large-scale social, economic, political, and cultural shifts of the 21st century. He will focus on how those who continue to benefit from their place within the racial hierarchy understand and make sense of that hierarchy and their place within it.
