Associate Professor of Sociology, St. Catherine’s University
Daniel Williams, PhD, is associate professor at Carleton College and St. Catherine University. Prof. Williams is working on an oral history of race, homeownership, and community in the Twin Cities Metro Area. Professor Williams’ work will include in-depth interviews with BIPOC and white homeowners, to uncover and understand how race has mediated intergenerational homeownership and a sense of community in the context of historically racialized practices and policies. A second part of this project–a multilingual survey of neighborhood citizenship and community–will focus on the experiences of immigrants and BIPOC renters to address the complexity of racial and ethnic diversity and space in the local context.
