Distinguished Professor of Sociology Nancy Foner is an expert on the comparative study of immigration, both over time and between the United States and Europe. The author or editor of 18 books, including the recent Strangers No More: Immigration and the Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe (co-authored with Richard Alba; Princeton, 2015), Foner examines how massive post-1965 immigration has been reshaping the United States. Bringing together diverse strands in the social-science literature, her Academy project explores how immigration has influenced a wide range of institutions as well as cultural and social patterns.
