This project focuses on the political mobilization of Indian Americans and contributes to understanding the political incorporation of U.S. immigrants by examining how first- and second-generation immigrants mobilize advocacy organizations around ethnic, pan-ethnic, religious, and party-oriented identities. It also reveals how race and religion interact in complex ways to shape the political integration of immigrants.

Prema Kurien, professor of Sociology and director of the Asian/Asian American Studies Program at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, is the author of two award-winning books, Kaleidoscopic Ethnicity: International Migration and the Reconstruction of Community Identities in India, and A Place at the Multicultural Table: The Development of an American Hinduism.
