Latino Jews in the United States – Professor Laura Limonic
Professor Laura Limonic will discuss Jewishness, race, ethnicity, and immigration through the stories of Latino Jews in the United States. Drawing on the experiences of Latino Jewish immigrants, the historical roots of Jewish migration streams to Latin America and a sociological comparative perspective, Limonic will explore how group construction is never static, and in particular, how race, religion, and class are increasingly important mediating factors in defining ethnicity and ethnic identity. Limonic’s talk will offer new insight with which to understand the diversity of Latinos, the incorporation of contemporary Jewish immigrants, and the effect of U.S. ethno-racial structures for immigrant assimilation.
Laura Limonic is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the College of Old Westbury of the State University of New York. Her research is in the area of contemporary immigration to the United States and the integration trajectories of ethnic and ethno-religious groups. Her recent book, Kugel and Frijoles: Latino Jews in the United States, explores issues of ethnicity, race, class and religious community building among Latino Jewish immigrants in Boston, New York, Miami and Southern California. Kugel and Frijoles was awarded the best book of 2020 by the Latin American Jewish Studies Association.
