Discussion with Miri Song (University of Kent)
Moderator: Cécile Coquet-Mokoko (Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin)
Discussant: Nathalie Loison (Université Paris XI Orsay
While there has been significant growth in studies about multiracial (or mixed race) individuals – that is, the children of interracial unions – very few studies have investigated the experiences of people who are the descendants of multiracial individuals (such as the children of multiracial people).
Miri Song is Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent. She is an American who did her PhD in London, and she has been interested in trans-Atlantic debates and research on migration (in its many forms), race, racisms, and most recently, multiracial people and experiences. Her most recent book is: Multiracial Parents: Mixed Families, Generational Change and the Future of Race (NYU Press 2017)
