Andrea Voyer is a 2017-2018 Visiting Scholar at the Russell Sage Foundation and Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Connecticut. Her research focuses on processes of social inclusion and exclusion on the basis of immigration, race, and class. Her research on Somali immigrant inclusion was recently published as a book, Strangers and Neighbors: Multiculturalism, Conflict, and Community in America. Her current research, funded by the Russell Sage Foundation, examines inter-class interactions in everyday life. She is also conducting an analysis of historical changes in Emily Post’s Etiquette for the insight that manners provide into changes in American class relations and social inequality.
