Daniel Martinez HoSang received his BA in History from Wesleyan University and PhD in American Studies and Ethnicity from the University of Southern California. He is the author of Racial Propositions: Ballot Initiatives and the Making of Postwar California (University of California Press, 2010) which was awarded the 2011 James A Rawley Prize from the Organization of American Historians. He is co-editor, with Oneka LaBennett and Laura Pulido, of Racial Formation in the 21st Century (University of California Press, 2012). HoSang’s research and teaching explore the contradictory labor of race within U.S. political culture across a wide-range of sites, including a long-history of collaboration with community-based organizations. Prior to joining the Yale faculty in 2017, HoSang was an Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies and Political Science at the University of Oregon.
His current projects include two monographs, A Wider Type of Freedom: Rethinking Racial Justice (under contract, University of California Press) and The Labor of Race in the Age of Inequality (with Joseph Lowndes, under contract, University of Minnesota Press). He is also co-editing a forthcoming volume titled Seeing Race Again: Countering Colorblindness Across the Disciplines (with Kimberlé Crenshaw, Luke Harris and George Lipsitz, under contract, University of California Press) and another volume titled Studying Race Relationally (with Natalia Molina and Ramón A. Gutiérrez.)
