G. Reginald Daniel wins 2012 Loving Prize award

G. Reginald Daniel, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara; Affiliated Faculty, Latin American and Iberian Studies, the Departments of Black Studies, Asian American Studies, History, and Chicana and Chicano Studies. Since 1989, he has taught “Betwixt and Between,” which is one of the first and the longest-standing university courses to deal specifically with the question of multiracial identity comparing the U.S. with various parts of the world.Daniel has published numerous articles and chapters that cover this topic. He is author of “Passers and Pluralists: Subverting the Racial Divide” and “Beyond Black and White: The New Multiracial Consciousness,” which appeared in the first comprehensive anthology to examine multiracial identity in the United States, Racially Mixed People in America (1992). “Passers and Pluralists: Subverting the Racial Divide” is among the most cited essays on the topic of multiraciality. He is also co-author of “Being Different Together in the University Classroom: Multiracial Identity as Transgressive Education,” and author of “Black and White Identity in the New Millennium: Unsevering the Ties That Bind,” which are chapters in the second comprehensive examination of multiracial identity in the United States, The Multiracial Experience: Racial Borders as the New Frontier (1996). Finally, Daniel’s chapter “Race, Multiraciality, and the Election of Barack Obama: Toward a More Perfect Union?” (2012), appears in Andrew Jolivette’s Obama and the Biracial Factor: The Battle for a New American Majority (2012), which is the first anthology devoted specifically to questions of multiraciality and Obama’s path to the presidency.
Daniel’s books entitled More Than Black? Multiracial Identity and the New Racial Order (2002), Race and Multiraciality in Brazil and the United States: Converging Paths? (2006), and Machado de Assis: Multiracial Identity and the Brazilian Novelist (2012), are a culmination of much of his thinking on the relationship between social structure and racial formation—especially multiracial identities. He is a co-founding editor, along with Wei Ming Dariotis, Laura Kina, Maria P.P. Root, and Paul R. Spickard of the recently launched Journal of Critical Mixed Race Studies.
