Tristan Ivory is an Assistant professor, International and Comparative Labor, Cornell University. Professor Ivory’s research is principally concerned with various aspects of Sub-Saharan African geographic, social and economic mobility. His first research project explored these issues for Sub-Saharan African Migration to Japan.
More recently, Ivory has begun a multi-year, multi-site longitudinal interview project that will track Sub-Saharan middle-class high school and college students as they begin professional careers in order to assess whether there is a substantial correlation between international migration and better economic and social outcomes. In addition to these two projects, he is also engaged in a long-term collaborative research project with colleagues in Sweden and Japan that addresses issues of foreign-born women’s labor force participation in Japan, Sweden, and the United States.
Professor Ivory has received his BA, MA, and Ph.D. in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity and Sociology at Stanford University. He also received his ME at UCLA.
He will be speaking about Sub-Saharan Migrants in Japan.
