Bruce D. Haynes
Bruce D. Haynes is professor of sociology at the University of California, Davis. Haynes studies racial and ethnic relations and urban communities. His work splits into two general research areas: racialized community formation, and race and social identity. Haynes’ work often crosses disciplinary boundaries of American Studies, Community and Urban Sociology, Race and Ethnic Relations, and Jewish Studies while it remains embedded squarely in the traditional historical and qualitative methodologies of Sociology. His publications include The Ghetto: Contemporary Issues and Controversies (Westview Press, 2011), Red Lines, Black Spaces: The Politics of Race and Space in a Black Middle-Class Suburb (Yale University Press 2006), and a co-authored with Syma Solovitch called Down the Up Staircase: Three Generations of a Harlem Family Columbia University Press 2017. Currently, Haynes has an “in press” research project with New York University Press about Black Jews in America.
