Monica McDermott

Stanford Professor of Sociology

speaking on




Going Undercover to Find Out

About Illegal Immigrants




Professor McDermott will discuss the work she did in Greenville, S.C.,  where
she went undercover  to see first-hand how whites and Latinos were getting
along.  McDermott took a year sabbatical from Stanford and moved to
Greenville where she lived in a neighborhood that was home to working-class
Hispanic immigrants and native Southerners, and worked at a retail store.


Professor McDermotts research focuses upon the ways in which race and
class interact in the contemporary United States. She uses a variety of
methodologies to analyze race/class interactions, ranging from participant
observations to statistical analysis of secondary survey data and census data.


Since returning to Stanford, McDermott has made several more research visits
to South Carolina.  Come hear Professor McDermott as she details her
personal experiences and talks about todays debate over immigration.
