Bruno Carvalho's work focuses on intersections between urban development and culture. He has written on topics related to literature, film, architecture, cartography and city planning, in publications like Spaces and Flows, Luso-Brazilian Review, Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies, Remate de Males, revista piauí and Daylight & Architecture. He is the author of Porous City: A Cultural History of Rio de Janeiro (forthcoming), and co-organized a critical edition in Portuguese of the earliest versions of the United States constitutions, which circulated in 18th century Brazil and played a role in independence movements (O Livro do Tiradentes, forthcoming). Currently, he is collaborating on a new museum of the city of Rio de Janeiro, and working on two books: the first is tentatively titled Partial Enlightenments: New Cartographies of Knowledge (1755-1791). The second, The Future Revisited, explores how different unrealized urban plans have helped to shape the imaginary and development of cities. At Princeton, Bruno Carvalho holds the George H. and Mildred F. Whitfield University Preceptorship in the Humanities, and is affiliated to the Program in Urban Studies and the Program in Latin American Studies. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University.

Although their parents cross borders in search of the American Dream, the children of illegal aliens, most of them Mexican and Central American, are increasingly being marginalized and are at risk of ending up in the ‘rainbow underclass.’ The same is true for many youngsters whose parents arrived from Haiti, Jamaica, or the Dominican Republic. Since 2002 I have been investigating the conditions surrounding second-generation immigrants in Southern Florida. Young people are adapting to our pluralistic society by shunning conventional employment and turning to entrepreneurship in order to secure independence and improve their standard of living.
Whether as graffiti artists, singers, lyricists, photographers, or Internet Casino operators, the new immigrant generation is discovering innovative ways to define that which is American.

Professor Fiske's research addresses how stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination are encouraged or discouraged by social relationships, such as cooperation, competition, and power. We begin with the premise that people easily categorize other people, especially based on race, gender, and age. Going beyond such categories, to learn about the individual person, requires motivation. Social relationships supply one form of motivation to individuate, and our work shows that being on the same team or depending on another person makes people go beyond stereotypes. Conversely, people in power are less motivated to go beyond their stereotypes. In laboratory studies, we examine how a variety of relationships affect people forming impressions of others.
Society's cultural stereotypes and prejudice also depend on relationships of power and interdependence. Group status and competition affect how groups are (dis)liked and (dis)respected. In surveys, we examine the content of group stereotypes based on race, gender, age, (dis)ability, income, and more, finding patterns in the ways that society views various groups.

Douglas S. Massey is interested in the social construction of race and the use of race as a social category in racially stratified societies. He has written extensively on the topic of black residential segregation in the United States, and his work has sought to determine the causes and consequences of segregation in American cities, focusing on its role in perpetuating black socioeconomic disadvantage. He is also interested in the topic of racial construction in Latin America and the racialization of Latinos in the United States, focusing most recently on the demonization and exclusion of persons of Mexican origin. Recent work in education has focused on the role of stereotype threat in undermining black academic achievement.

The focus of Shelton's research is on understanding prejudice and discrimination from the target's perspective. In one line of research she examines social interactions between Whites and ethnic minorities. Here she explores how interpersonal concerns about issues of prejudice (i.e., concerns with appearing prejudiced and concerns with being rejected) influence the dynamics of intergroup contact. Additionally, she has been exploring personality and situational factors that influence the development and maintenance of cross-racial friendships. In the second line of research, Shelton is studying issues related to targets' detection of and responses to prejudice and discrimination. Here she has been examining situational and personality factors that influence the extent to which ethnic minorities and women will make attributions to discrimination and confront perpetrators of prejudice. Additionally, Shelton is examining the personal and social costs of confronting and not confronting perpetrators of prejudice.
