Grace Yukich

Grace Yukich is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Quinnipiac University. Her research, writing, and teaching explore questions about how immigration is changing the relationship between religion and politics in the United States. Her first book, One Family Under God: Immigration Politics and Progressive Religion in America, was published in 2013 with Oxford University Press. Her work has also appeared in journals like Social Problems, Sociology of Religion, and Mobilization as well as in edited volumes like Sanctuary Practices in International Perspectives. In addition to her more traditional publications, her writing has appeared at The Immanent Frame, a blog on secularism, religion, and the public sphere, where she is a contributing editor. She is also editor-in-chief of Mobilizing Ideas, a blog publishing conversations between social movement scholars and activists. Her current research examines how social change efforts in Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim communities in the U.S. are challenging conventional wisdom about how and why Americans engage in religious activism, particularly exploring how transnational connections shape religious activism.
