  • Rita Chin | Associate Professor, Department of History
    2007 paperback 2009 examines the social political cultural and ideological consequences of the postwar labor recruitment for the Federal Republic of Germany Focusing on the national public debate about the guest worker program and its impacts she shows how West German society wrestled with the growing presence of large numbers of non Germans from the beginning of the recruitment process in 1955 to reunification in 1990 She argues that wider discussions in the West German public sphere included not only the official discourse made up of political pronouncements and debates in the legislature and political parties but also the efforts of minority intellectuals to recast that discourse Ultimately Chin demonstrates the ways in which the process of debating the effects of the postwar labor migration reshaped the very boundaries of German identity culture and nation In the process of finishing her first book project Chin began to consider the larger issue of race in postwar Germany more generally This line of inquiry resulted in a collaborative book After the Nazi Racial State Difference and Democracy in Germany and Europe University of Michigan Press 2009 with Heide Fehrenbach Geoff Eley and Atina Grossmann The book sought to open up a major but hitherto unexplored question what happened to ideas about race and ethnicity in Germany after Hitler Chin is completing a new book The Rise and Fall of Multiculturalism in Europe which is under contract with Princeton University Press This project builds on her previous engagement with postwar immigration and the social cultural and political effects of diversity but takes these issues in several new and more ambitious directions At the most basic level the book moves away from an exclusive focus on Germany and offers a comparative analysis of the politics of multiculturalism in Europe It weaves together the histories

    Area My research at the intersection of psychology and women s studies works to understand the social construction of categories like gender race and social class Feminist theorists have long argued that these categories are not natural or essential but instead derive meaning from specific social and cultural practices and beliefs that vary in different times and places I m interested in questions such as How do the categories mutually construct each other and work together to shape outcomes such as well being or political attitudes How do people experience these social categories as parts of their identities How do members of different groups perceive these categories of difference and how are these perceptions related to prejudice To address these questions I use both qualitative and quantitative methods My past projects have explored topics such as political participation among women who graduated from college during the late 1960s the role of social class identity in women s attitudes towards abortion and the processes through which race and gender consciousness develop among college students Currently I m interested in the concept of intersectionality how do individuals simultaneously experience racial class and or gender identities I teach many different courses but some
