I have a new theoretical article at Sociological Theory (free pre-print version here). It lays out themes for a relational perspective of segregation, which challenges some of our common assumption about what causes segregation and how it affects social life. It includes “A Rant on Homophily,” Aesop’s Fables, and some interesting historical examples of medieval European religious relations and U.S. race relations. You can also read more about it on my segregation page. Hope you’ll check it out!
