14TH ANNUAL CHICAGO ETHNOGRAPHY CONFERENCE

Public sociology moves beyond the academy to engage more directly with communities, policy makers, and the public. Chicago has long been home to scholars engaging in socially relevant and justice-oriented forms of ethnography, often situated in analyses of the city itself. It is fitting, therefore, that this annual conference brings together early-career ethnographers to share their work and discuss its public relevance. Plenary and keynote speakers, Hctor Carrillo and Alford A. Young, Jr., will discuss the ways in which their ethnographic scholarship pushes the boundaries of the discipline and engages with various publics.

Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Northwestern University, Hctor Carrillo is the author of The Night Is Young: Sexuality in Mexico in the Time of AIDS (University of Chicago Press, 2002). Carrillo is currently studying the intersections of sexuality, migration, and heath, especially in relation to the incorporation of migrant populations into U.S. life and society. He currently investigates the phenomenon of sexual migration and its relation to HIV risk among Mexican gay and bisexual male immigrants.
ALFORD A. YOUNG, JR., UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN HCTOR CARRILLO, NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY

Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and Department Chair at the University of Michigan Department of Sociology, Alford A. Young, Jr. has pursued research on low-income, urban-based African Americans, employees at an automobile manufacturing plant, African American scholars and intellectuals, and the classroom-based experiences of higher-education faculty as they pertain to diversity and multiculturalism. His objective in research on low-income African American men, his primary area of research, has been to argue for a renewed cultural sociology of the African American urban poor. Essentially, he argues that behavior is not solely produced and regulated by values and norms, but is also affected by the beliefs, worldviews, and personal ideologies that people construct, adapt, and/or employ in forming what are, for them, common-sense understandings of social reality. Books published include The Minds of Marginalized Black Men: Making Sense of Mobility, Opportunity, and Future Life Chances and The Souls of W.E.B. Du Bois.
