We are delighted to share the news that Dina Okamoto was nominated as Indiana University’s 2021 senior candidate for a Carnegie Fellowship, one of the most prestigious honors in the humanities and social sciences. Campus leadership was impressed by her proposal to study Asian American narratives and organizing for social change in the 21st century. The project focuses on the major demographic and political changes within the Asian American population over the past few decades and how this diverse group engages with the racial category of Asian American in the contemporary era while seeking social change and political visibility. While awaiting word from the Carnegie Foundation, Dina is continuing to work on a number of research projects related to immigrant civic engagement, intergroup relations, and experiences of discrimination within the context of increasing ethnic and racial diversity in the U.S. Earlier this year, she received a grant from the Russell Sage Foundation (with IU alum Tamara van der Does) to use computational methods to study political rhetoric over time that differentiates immigrants from “Americans.” Dina has completed her first year as co-editor of American Sociological Review (with Art Alderson) and continues to serve as Director of the Center for Research on Race and Ethnicity in Society (CRRES).
