Matthew W. Hughey, phd


I joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut as an Associate Professor in 2013.  I am also an Affiliate Faculty member in the Africana Studies Institute and the  American Studies Program.

I study the relationship between racial meanings and the prevailing structures of racism and racial inequality through examinations of (1) white racial identity; (2) racialized organizations; (3) mass media racial representations; (4) public and political engagements with race, and; (5) advocacy and engagement with racism and discrimination.
