I am interested in issues of migration, ethnicity, multiculturalism, and national identity in Canada/Québec and Europe. I have published on historical sociology, namely on the idea of race in early German sociology and on Max Weber's contribution to the sociology of ethnic relations. My most recent book (UTP, 2011) studies the intersection between nationalism and multiculturalism. In particular, it traces the triangular relations between the national majority, established minorities, and immigration-related diversity in Canada. See elkewinter.com for an overview of my current research projects. I supervise graduate students with research projects in the fields of nationalism, migration, asylum/integration, and interethnic diversity.
