Angel Adams Parham is Associate Professor of Sociology at Loyola University-New Orleans. Her work engages the intersection of race, migration, identity, and national belonging. She has a particular interest in the ways communities and cultures of the U.S. South and the Caribbean have been mutually constituted by transnational flows of people and ideas in the past and the present. This interest produces work that seeks to enlarge our understanding of what it means to be “American”.
