Biography
Dan Rodríguez-García is Associate Professor ‘Serra Hunter’ of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, where he also is the Coordinator of the Joint European Master in Social and Cultural Anthropology (CREOLE).
He holds a BA, an MA, and a PhD in Social and Cultural Anthropology (UAB, 1994, 1997, and 2002); an MSc in Demography (CED, 1997); and an MA in Culture, Race, and Difference (University of Sussex, 1998). He has held research fellowships at the University of Sussex and the University of Toronto; and has been a Visiting Professor at the Université Paris-Sorbonne, the University of Vienna, and the Institut National d’Études Démographiques.
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 by the Catalan Government (SGR-1527), a competitive recognition that aims to distinguish top-notch research groups in all fields of knowledge.
His areas of research are international migration, interethnic relations, and the social integration processes of immigrants and their descendants. In 1996, he started a pioneering line of research in Spain on mixedness, devoted to the study of intermarriage (mixed couples and families), to evaluate the impact that ethnocultural mixing is having on transforming contemporary societies. For his work in this field (applying a critical, comparative, interdisciplinary and multi-method research approach), he has obtained a number of research awards.
His publications include Intermarriage and Integration Revisited (Guest Editor for the Special Issue #662 of The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, 2015); Managing Immigration and Diversity in Canada (McGill-Queen’s UP, 2012); and “Beyond Assimilation and Multiculturalism” (Journal of International Migration and Integration, 2010).
He is currently the PI of the R&D project: Social Relations and Identity Processes of Children of Mixed Unions (MIXED YOUTH).
