Professor Jennifer Hochschild is currently the Henry LaBarre Jayne Professor Government and a Professor of African and African American Studies at Harvard University. She also holds lectureships in the Kennedy School of Government and the Graduate School of Education. Prof. Hochschild studies the intersection of American politics and political philosophy — particularly in the areas of race, ethnicity, and immigration — and educational policy. She also works on issues in public opinion and political culture. A prolific author with books out of the Princeton, Oxford, Harvard, and Yale presses, Professor Hochschild has also served as vice president of the American Political Science Association, has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Philosophical Society, and the Mellon Foundation, and has taught at Duke, Columbia, and Princeton.
Her lecture at Lewis & Clark will detail her current book project, tentatively titled Blurring Racial Boundaries: Skin Color, Immigration, Multiracialism, and DNA.
