In the last half century, the United States has undergone a profound
demographic transformation in the wake of a massive inflow of immigrants.
In 2014, immigrants represented approximately 13 percent of the U.S.
population; together with their U.S. born children the figure was nearly 25
percent, a remarkable 80 million people. This growth in immigration, mainly
from Latin America, Asia, and the Caribbean, has altered the racial and
ethnic composition of the nation. The non-Hispanic white population in the
United States declined from 83 to 62 percent between 1970 and 2014, while
the Hispanic population grew from 4 to 17 percent in the same period.
Asians, less than one percent of the U.S. population in 1970, are now
slightly more than five percent. Indeed, Asians are currently the
fastest-growing immigrant group. The number of black immigrants (from
Africa and the Caribbean) has also increased, with approximately one out of
ten blacks in the United States now foreign-born. What is also notable in
recent years is the geographic spread of immigrants away from traditional
receiving states to new gateways, especially in the southern and midwestern
United States. The result has been greater racial and ethnic diversity in a
wide swath of urban and rural neighborhoods across the country.

In seeking to understand the effects of the changing ethnic, racial, and
immigrant-origin composition of the U.S. population and the growing
racial/ethnic diversity throughout the country, this issue of *RSF* puts
the spotlight on shifts in ethnic, racial and national identities,
including the nature of these shifts and their implications. It has a
three-pronged focus: (1) how those of immigrant origin as well as
long-established natives have come to identify themselves in terms of race,
ethnicity, and nationality; (2) how members of each group are viewed and
categorized by others in terms of ethnicity and race; and (3) the impact of
these identity processes on interactions among members of different
ethnoracial groups. We invite proposals from scholars across a wide variety
of social science disciplines, including anthropology, economics,
geography, political science, psychology, sociology, and urban studies. We
also welcome contributions based on qualitative, quantitative, and mixed
methods approaches, as well as large-scale national and/or small-scale
studies. In addition, we are interested in proposals that bring together
insights from, and aim to bridge the sometimes separate, existing
literatures on race, ethnicity, and immigration.

*Anticipated Timeline*

*Prospective contributors should submit a CV and an abstract (up to two
pages in length, single or double spaced) of their study along with up to
two pages of supporting material (e.g. tables, figures, pictures, etc) no
later than 5 PM EST on May 2, 2016 to:*


All submissions must be original work that has not been previously
published in part or in full. Only abstracts submitted to
will be considered. Each paper will receive a $1,000 honorarium when the
issue is published. The journal issue is being edited by Kay Deaux,
Distinguished Professor Emerita at CUNY Graduate Center and Visiting
Research Scholar, New York University; Katharine M. Donato, Professor of
Sociology at Vanderbilt University; and Nancy Foner, Distinguished
Professor of Sociology at Hunter College and the CUNY Graduate Center. All
questions regarding this issue should be directed to Suzanne Nichols,
Director of Publications, at journals@rsage.org and not to the email
addresses of the editors of the special issue.

A conference will take place at RSF in New York City on *February 17, 2017*.
The selected contributors will gather for a one-day workshop to present
draft papers (due on 1/17/17, a month prior to the conference) and receive
feedback from the other contributors and editors. Travel costs, food, and
lodging will be covered by the foundation. Papers will be circulated before
the conference. After the conference, the authors will submit their final
drafts on or before April 28, 2017. The papers will then be sent out to two
additional scholars for peer review. Having received feedback from
reviewers and the RSF board, authors will revise their papers before August
1, 2017. The full and final issue will be published in the spring of 2018.
Papers will be published open access on the RSF website as well as in
several digital repositories, including JSTOR and UPCC/Muse.
