Grace Yukich is an associate professor of sociology at Quinnipiac University. Her research examines how immigration is changing the relationship between religion and public life in the United States. Her book, “One Family Under God: Immigration Politics and Progressive Religion in America” (Oxford University Press, 2013), chronicles how religious activists are working both for immigration reform and for religious change in the U.S. Her research has also appeared in various journals, including Social Problems, Mobilization, Sociology of Religion, and Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, as well as popular venues like newspapers and blogs. She is currently working on three book manuscripts: 1) religion’s role in the public engagement of American Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims; 2) discrimination against Arab American Muslims in the U.S. labor and housing markets; and 3) an edited volume examining the intersection of religion and race. A new project, funded by the Louisville Institute, is examining the ways religion shapes notions and practices of courage during uncertain times. She is Book Review Editor for the journal Sociology of Religion, and a former Contributing Editor of The Immanent Frame, the SSRC’s blog on secularism, religion, and the public sphere. She is the founding editor-in-chief of Mobilizing Ideas, a blog publishing conversation between social movement scholars and activists. From 2010-2011, she was a Religion and Public Life Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for the Study of Religion. She also recently completed a term as a Young Scholar in American Religion at the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture (2014-2016).
