Christine Leibbrand Presents her Research on the Role of Race, Gender and Ethnicity in the Decline of Internal Migration

Posted: 11/26/2018 (CSDE Seminar Series)

CSDE Fellow Christine Leibbrand, PhD candidate at Sociology, will present her research on the role of race, gender and ethnicity in the decline of internal migration at the final SocSem of the quarter, this Friday, 11/30/2018.

Christine’s research focuses on internal migration and residential mobility within the United States and the relationship between migration, mobility, and individual and familial socioeconomic and neighborhood outcomes. She is also interested in how migration and mobility influence racial and gender disparities in socioeconomic and neighborhood outcomes. Her dissertation examines the ways in which the returns to inter-county and inter-state U.S. migration are shaped by race and gender and the extent to which those returns have changed over time. Christine is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology and has concentrations in Demographic Methods from CSDE and in Social Statistics from the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences.

SocSems are biweekly area seminars sponsored by the Department of Sociology that offer graduate students and faculty an opportunity to present and discuss research (often in progress). We gather mid-afternoon on Fridays for research presentations and lively discussion.  Following long-standing tradition, light refreshments will be provided.  Please mark your calendars, and plan to join us.
