Carolyn Pinedo-Turnovsky is a sociologist and trained in qualitative research methods. Her research examines meanings of race, ethnicity and gender, their intersections with immigration law/policy in the U.S. and outcomes in shaping daily life, in particular, for Latinas/os in migration and labor. Her first book, Daily Labors. Marketing Identity and Bodies on a New York City Street Corner (Temple University Press, 2019) is an ethnographic community study that reveals how ideologies about race, gender, nation, and legal status operate on the corner shaping the vulnerabilities and sense of community workers experience in this labor market. Her next book project theoretically and empirically examines undocumented-ness and the range of documenting practices carried out by the state and by immigrants. For more information, view Session Two, a recording from The Bugs and Beast Before the Law colloquium organized by the Henry Art Gallery or read the accompanying essay "Un/documented Presence". She has been an Undocu-Ally Educator since her arrival working closely with the Leadership Without Borders Program and is Faculty Advisor to the Purple Group, an RSO that supports and advocates for undocumented students at the UW.
