As a scholar of racial and ethnic relations and urban communities, Bruce Haynes’ work seeks to understand the processes of racialization and the consequences of racial classification for communities, particularly within an urban context. His work crosses disciplinary boundaries of American Studies, Community and Urban Sociology, Race and Ethnic Relations, and Jewish Studies while it remains embedded squarely in traditional historical and qualitative methodologies in Sociology. Professor Haynes’ work can be divided into three general research areas: racialized community formation; race, racialization, and social identity; and urban poverty, race and place.
