Daniel Williams, Visiting Assistant Professor, completed his PhD in Sociology at the University of Maryland-College Park in 2011. His research interests are in race and ethnicity, citizenship and immigration, and discourse and culture, all in global-comparative perspective.  His dissertation examined recent transformations in citizenship laws in Germany and their relationship to immigrants’ understandings of national belonging and becoming citizens.  He earned previous degrees at Northwestern University (B.A.) and the University of Minnesota (M.A., Public Policy), where he pursued similar interests.
