Grace Yukich is Professor of Sociology at Quinnipiac University. She studies social movements, religion, immigration, race & ethnicity, and culture, and she regularly teaches courses in these areas. Her newest book, Religion Is Raced: Understanding American Religion in the Twenty-first Century (NYU Press, co-edited with Penny Edgell), calls on sociologists, religious studies scholars, pollsters, and journalists to recognize the inextricability of religion and race in the United States. Her first book, One Family Under God: Immigration Politics and Progressive Religion in America (Oxford), chronicles religious activists offering sanctuary in houses of worship, working both for immigration reform and for a more progressive, global vision of what it means to be religious in America. She frequently gives public lectures on her research, and her writing has appeared in and/or she has been quoted in popular media outlets such as the Washington Post and Salon. She is a Public Fellow at PRRI, and a National Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture.
