Matthew Andrews is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Michigan and will defend his dissertation in December 2012. His research interests are at the intersection of cultural sociology and the sociology of race and ethnicity, with a focus on narrative and interracial relationships. In his dissertation, he analyzes how multiracial individuals, from their unique vantage point as products of interracial relations, perceive the role of race in their closest personal relationships (e.g. family, friends, romantic partners). His project focuses on the case of Filipinos in the U.S. and draws on over 60 focused, life story interviews conducted in two demographically disparate U.S. regions. This research was supported by the Ford Foundation and the University of Michigan’s Rackham Graduate School. In addition to his research, he has taught and given invited lectures on introductory sociology, qualitative research methods, narrative theory, and Asian American history.
