Biography and Interests
Helen B. Marrow is a sociologist of immigration, race and ethnicity, social class, health, and inequality and social policy. Her work explores Latin Americans' incorporation trajectories and racial and ethnic identities in the United States and Europe, the impact of immigration on social life and race relations in the rural American South, variation in public bureaucracies' approaches to unauthorized immigration (especially in education, law enforcement, and health care), and the relationship between immigrant-native contact, trust, and civic engagement. As an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Tufts University, she teaches courses on sociology, social policy, immigration and the media, and research methods.
