Jelanie Ince is a an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at University of Washington. Jelani’s primary work uses qualitative methods to examine how and why racial inequality persists in the United States.
Another area of Jelani’s research focuses on how digital communities and social movement behavior shape public opinion and influence the political process. Specifically, examining the Movement for Black Lives: the various tactics that actors use to disseminate information about movement activity and deploy frames for recruitment, inclusion, and resistance.
Some of Jelani’s previous work has been featured in Ethnic and Racial Studies and Sociology Compass. My research has been supported by the Ford Foundation and the Center for Research on Race & Ethnicity in Society (CRRES) at Indiana University.
