Janelle Wong is an Associate Professor of American Studies and the Director of Asian American Studies at University of Maryland in College Park, MD. Her research focuses on race, immigration, and political mobilization. Dr. Wong is the author of Democracy’s Promise: Immigrants and American Civic Institutions (2006, University of Michigan Press) and co-author of two books on Asian American politics. She is currently working on a book about the impact Asian American and Latino evangelical Christians will have on the traditional conservative Christian movement and immigrant political participation. Recently, PRRI had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Wong in depth about some of the 2014 American Values Survey’s findings on Asian Americans.
This weekend, Dr. Robert P. Jones appeared on State of Belief Radio to discuss the findings of “Beyond Guns and Gun: Understanding the Complexities of the White Working Class in America.” On the show, Dr. Jones highlighted some of the report’s surprising findings. Although white working-class Americans live in different regions and tend to face different challenges than white college-educated Americans, they still don’t fit into popular stereotypes perpetuated by both the left and the right.
