BRIEF BIO

Dan Rodríguez-García is Serra Hunter Associate Professor of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), Spain, where he also holds the positions of Coordinator of the 'Master in Anthropology: Advanced Research and Social Intervention' and Coordinator of the 'European Master in Social and Cultural Anthropology (CREOLE)', a joint program involving 8 universities. He has also held the positions of Academic Coordinator/Deputy Chair and Director of Postgraduate Studies (M.A. and Ph.D.). He obtained his Ph.D. (summa cum laude) in 2002 at UAB. Previously he had obtained a three-year Diploma in History (UAB, 1992); a B.A. in Social and Cultural Anthropology (UAB, 1994, First Class Honours); an M.Sc. in Demography (Centre for Demographic Studies, Barcelona, 1997, Full Scholarship); an M.A. in Basic and Applied Research in Social and Cultural Anthropology (UAB, 1997); and an M.A. in Culture, Race, and Difference (University of Sussex, UK, 1998, Batista i Rocaone-year Scholarship for Postgraduate Studies in Great Britain).

He has 20 years of experience teaching with full academic responsibility, both undergraduate and graduate courses, notably the graduate courses “Epistemology and Methodology in the Social Sciences” and “Migrations and Intercultural Relations,” and the doctoral course “International Migration.” He has directed 3 doctoral theses and is currently the director of 3 others. He has also supervised 15 MA theses and has evaluated more than 70 in Examination Committees. He has held research fellowships at the University of Sussex, United Kingdom (1997-98), and at the University of Toronto, Canada (2004-05). And he has been a Visiting Professor at the Université Paris-Sorbonne, the Institut National d’Études Démographiques (INED), the University of Vienna, the University of Toronto, and Malmö University. 

He is the founder and Director of the Research Group on Immigration, Mixedness, and Social Cohesion (INMIX) at UAB, officially recognized as a Consolidated Research Group (2017SGR-466) by the Catalan Government’s Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR), a competitive recognition that aims to support top-notch research groups in all fields of knowledge. He is also a member of the Network of Excellence on International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in Europe (IMISCOE), a member of the International Metropolis Network, and an Affiliated Research Member of CERIS–The Ontario Metropolis Centre. Further, he is a regular participant in training and knowledge transfer activities regarding immigration and diversity issues for different government institutions, associations, and the media. 

His areas of research are international migration, interethnic relations,and the social integration processes of immigrants and their descendants. In 1996 he began a pioneering line of research in Spain on “mixedness”, an encompassing concept that refers to demographic patterns of intermarriage and mixed families across national, ethnocultural, religious and class boundaries; social attitudes and political discourses towards mixing; the intercultural and transnational dynamics of mixed unions/families; identity processes of the descendants of mixed families; and everyday culturally hybrid spaces. This subject has been the focus of much of his research, for whose results he has obtained a number of research awards: a Marqués de Lozoya National Award for Cultural Research (Ministry of Culture and Education, 2002), an S.P.R. National Award for Advancement in the Understanding of Migration (Institute of Studies on Migration, Universidad Pontificia Comillas, 2003), an Award of Excellence in Research in the Social Sciences (PREI-UAB, 2008), and an APOSTA Awardin the area of Social and Cultural Progress (UAB, 2011-14). 

He has directed six funded research projects and participated in another seven. His most recent ongoing research project as a PI is “Social Relations and Identity Processes of Children of Mixed Unions: Mixedness, Between Inclusion and Social Constraints (MIXED_YOUTH)”, an R&D project funded by the National Program for Research Aimed at the Challenges of Society of the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (Ref. CSO2015-63962-R).

Dan has authored about 60 publications in his field, including books, international edited volumes, book chapters, and peer-reviewed articles in top academic journals. Selected publications include: (Re-)constructing ways of belonging: Cross-country experiences of multiethnic and multiracial people (forthcoming Special Issue, Guest-Edited for Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies); “Preference and Prejudice: Does Intermarriage Erode Negative Ethno-racial Attitudes Between Groups in Spain?” (Ethnicities, 2016);  Intermarriage and Integration Revisited: International Experiences and Cross-disciplinary Approaches (Special Issue 662, Guest-Edited for The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, 2015); “Contextualizing Transnational Kinship: Theoretical and Methodological Considerations” (AIBR-Journal of Iberoamerican Anthropology, 2014, Finalist AIBR Award for Best Article of Iberoamerican Anthropology 2014); Managing Immigration and Diversity in Canada: A Transatlantic Dialogue in the New Age of Migration (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2012); “Beyond Assimilation and Multiculturalism: A Critical Review of the Debate on Managing Diversity” (Journal of International Migration and Integration, 2010); and “Mixed Marriages and Transnational Families in the Intercultural Context” (Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2006, Award of Excellence for Research in the Social Sciences UAB 2008).
