Ethnicity, Race, and Migration: Home

This subject guide is created to provide introductory resources in the areas of ethnicity, race, migration, and indigeneity.


This guide is created with the purpose of providing initial materials important to your research process. Please be aware that the use of terminology or the use of language in this space is not intended to, but may ultimately reinforce many of the biases/tensions you have encountered during the course of your study. Additionally, while materials are presented on this document in English, you may be able to search in other languages, especially within the Diaspora page.

Ethnicity, Race, and Migration is an interdisciplinary field, in which research questions may intersect with other interdisciplinary units such as: Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, African American Studies, and American Studies. Students and researchers are encouraged to engage resources in these fields and to provide feedback on areas that may be underrepresented.

For questions or comments about the materials represented here, please contact
