Jessica S. Welburn recently completed her graduate work in Sociology at Harvard University. Her research interests include race and ethnicity, cultural sociology, the sociology of the family and qualitative methodology. With funding from the National Science Foundation and the Harvard Real Estate Academic Initiative Jessica’s dissertation explored how African Americans who grew up in middle income households in New Jersey conceptualize their mobility prospects. While at the University of Michigan she will be conducting comparative work on African Americans, social mobility, and health outcomes in Detroit. In addition, Jessica is working with Professor Michèle Lamont (Harvard University) and an international team of researchers on a project comparing the antiracist strategies of stigmatized groups in the U.S., Brazil and Israel. Jessica just completed a postdoctoral fellowship with the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University Michigan and now joins the Department of Sociology for two years (2012-2014) as a President's Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
