Professor Williams’ work examines identities and inequalities from a comparative perspective, with a focus on contemporary Germany/Europe and the U.S., and a secondary interest in the African Diaspora. His main interest is in the interrelationship of race, ethnicity, and nation, and how they are shaped by class and gender. He examines these constructions through the experiences of immigrants and racial minorities, immigration policy and political discourse, and media representations.  He has lived and done research in Munich and Berlin. He speaks German and French.
