About this Event

Jeronimo Muñiz, Professor, Sociology, University of British Columbia

Jeronimo Muniz is an Associate Professor of Sociology from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, and will be a Visiting Scholar with the Department of Sociology at University of British Colombia until the end of 2019. His main research employs quantitative methods and empirical simulations to understand the construction of racial “realities” from predefined analytical categories. He has shown that geographic, taxonomic, sampling and temporal uncertainties may affect our understanding of racial inequality and stratification through variations in the measurement of race and skin color. This is an area that he has been publishing on since he graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 2008.
