Mapping Race and Ethnicity: The Influence of James Allen

Mapping Race and Ethnicity: The Influence of James Allen The theme of mapping race and ethnicity has been carried forward by many geographers, most by analyzing patterns to understand residential geographies and exploring processes of spatial assimilation of various racial and ethnic groups. James Allen's work is considered by many to be among the finest, and most classic, examples of this type of research. Through the eyes of a young scholar, this paper discusses the influence of James Allen's work on my own explorations in racial and ethnic geography. The paper outlines the themes and principal geographic concerns of James Allen's research and suggests how his work continues to inspire new racial and ethnic "mappings" and geographies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Yearbook of the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

The theme of mapping race and ethnicity has been carried forward by many geographers, most by analyzing patterns to understand residential geographies and exploring processes of spatial assimilation of various racial and ethnic groups. James Allen's work is considered by many to be among the finest, and most classic, examples of this type of research. Through the eyes of a young scholar, this paper discusses the influence of James Allen's work on my own explorations in racial and ethnic geography. The paper outlines the themes and principal geographic concerns of James Allen's research and suggests how his work continues to inspire new racial and ethnic "mappings" and geographies.
