Join ISIM for a discussion with Dr. Julie Park of the University of Maryland on her paper “Gendered Segmented Assimilation: Earnings Trajectories of African Immigrant Women and Men.”Racial stratification in immigrant earnings has been widely influential in theories of immigrant socioeconomic assimilation, but discussions of how racial stratification might differ by gender are underdeveloped. Dr. Julie Park will discuss the findings from her recent paper comparing the earnings of Black and white African migrants to US-born Blacks and whites separately by gender. Her findings highlight the importance of examining racial differences in immigrant earnings by gender.
