Dr. Daniel Williams

Associate Professor of Africana Studies and Sociology and Anthropology, Carleton College

Daniel Williams, PhD, is associate professor at Carleton College. Professor Williams’ work takes a comparative approach to both global and U.S.-based racial boundaries and identities.  His current work examines colorblind discourse in the European context (Germany) and its consequences for self-identities and Black European social movements.  In the U.S. context, Professor Williams’ work focuses on homeownership and neighborhood belonging in Black and immigrant communities, especially in the Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota Metro Area, as well as how local and regional contexts shape racial identities of Latin American and Brazilian immigrants in the U.S.  He teaches courses in all of these areas in both Africana Studies and Sociology.  He is committed to engagement with local communities as well as global learning through off-campus study and programs.
