Professor Wright teaches classes on immigration, racial segregation, and global processes. He was a Guggenheim Fellow in 1998. His work on mixed-race households seeks to understand the effect of racially segregated spaces on mixed-race household residential location, the effects of these spaces on the identity of children of mixed-race couples, and the role that racial mixing plays in remaking urban racial geography in the United States.  His work on immigration tackles issues of labor and housing market access, migration, and the racialization of immigrants (and the native born). He’s written about 70 scholarly papers on these topics.
