G. Reginald Daniel, PhD
Professor, Department of Sociology
University of California, Santa Barbara.
Since 1989, G. Reginald Daniel, PhD has taught “Betwixt and Between,” which is one of the first and longest-standing university courses to deal specifically with the question of multiracial identity comparing the U.S. with various parts of the world. He has published numerous articles and chapters that cover this topic. His books entitled More Than Black? Multiracial Identity and the New Racial Order (2002) and Race and Multiraciality in Brazil and the United States: Converging Paths? (2006), and his article “Race, Multiraciality, and Barack Obama: Toward a More Perfect Union?” are a culmination of much of this thinking on the relationship between social structure and racial formation–especially multiracial identities. He is a member of the Advisory Board of Association of Multiethnic Americans (AMEA), Advisory Council of the Mixed Heritage Center of MAVIN Foundation, and Advisory Board of Multiracial Americans of Southern California (MASC).
