Grace Yukich is assistant professor of Sociology at Quinnipiac University. Her research examines how immigration is changing the relationship between religion and activism in the United States. Her first 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 greater cultural acceptance of immigrants in the U.S. She is currently conducting research for her next book, which examines how social change efforts in American Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim communities challenge conventional wisdom about how and why Americans engage in religious activism. Her research has also appeared in various journals, including Social Problems, Mobilization, and Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion. She was recently named a Young Scholar in American Religion fellow by the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture. She is a Founding Editor-in-chief of Mobilizing Ideas. She received her doctorate from New York University in 2010.
