My research involves the interrelationships of the family lives of individual persons and the influence of social environments (family and community origins, educational opportunities, employment opportunities, cultural definitions of expected roles). My approach is broadly comparative, including studies of race, ethnic and immigrant groups and majority populations in the United States over the 20th century, Italian social history, contemporary Ethiopia and Palestine.
