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 the outcomes in shaping people’s daily lives, in particular, their experiences in 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”.
