What i'm up to now 2       abailey-81

Amy Bailey

I do not have formal classes this semester, but I am supervising independent study projects for half a dozen UIC undergraduates.

I’m currently working on
Serving as co-guest editor for a special issue of Population Research and Policy Review focusing on military and veteran populations (with Meredith Kleykamp from the University of Maryland)

Completing data collection – with a hardy band of a dozen UIC undergraduates – for a new database of people threatened with lynching (but not actually killed), and finalizing two papers from this project, to be co-authored with UIC graduate student Piere Washington and recent alumna Elizabeth Breen.

Learning how to do network analysis for a paper I am working on with UIC doctoral student Erin Eife and undergraduate Kobie Price. In the paper, we will compare organizational network structures between Chicago and Seattle – two metropolitan areas with vast differences in the patterns of intergenerational mobility.

Working on a pair of papers with UIC doctoral student Allison Helmuth that focus on how accounting for changes in ZIP Code boundaries affects our understanding of residential segregation.
