ASA President-Elect Eduardo Bonilla-Silva DCSS Address
Eduardo Bonilla-Silva is Professor of Sociology at Duke University and the ASA President-Elect. His work in the last 20 years has been in the area of race. He has published on racial theory, race and methodology, color-blind racism, the idea that race stratification in the USA is becoming Latin America-like, racial grammar, HWCUs, race and human rights, race and citizenship, whiteness, and the Obama phenomenon among other things. In his work, he contends that racism is fundamentally about "racial domination," hence, racism is a collective and structural phenomenon in society.
