La Faculté des Sciences Sociales et son unité de recherche l’Institut de Recherches en Sciences Sociales ont le plaisir de vous inviter à la première de leur nouveau séminaire facultaire ce mardi 25 octobre 2016 de 15h00 à 17h00 au TRIFAC 4.


A l’invitation du CEDEM, le Professeur Richard Alba de la City University of New York (CUNY) prononcera une conférence intitulée:

Finding Immigration’s impact on the Mainstream Society: The Case of the US


Richard D. Alba (born December 22, 1942) is an American sociologist, who is a Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center, CUNY. He is known for developing assimilation theory to fit the contemporary, multi-racial era of immigration, with studies in America, France and Germany.

Alba’s text on assimilation theory (written with Victor Nee), Remaking the American Mainstream (2003) won the Thomas & Znaniecki Award of the American Sociological Association and the Eastern Sociological Society’s Mirra Komarovsky Award. It was one of the most highly cited works in sociology.

Alba has also written about the historical realities of assimilation, using Italian Americans to exemplify them. His book, Ethnic Identity: The Transformation of White America (1990), summarizes his thinking on the assimilation of the so-called white ethnics. His Blurring the Color Line: The New Chance for a More Integrated America (2009) applied these ideas to non-white Americans.
