Carolina Aragão



Family, demography, gender, race.


Carolina Aragão is a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology and a Population Research Center graduate trainee at the
University of Texas at Austin. Her interests are at the intersection of family demography, race, and stratification in Latin America and
the United States. Her current work examines (1) interracial families in Brazil, asking how family dynamics respond and reproduce
racial hierarchies; (2) the relationship between women’s work, household composition, and socioeconomic stratification in Latin
America; and (3) patterns of household extension and instability across race and ethnic groups in the United States.
