Michèle Lamont and Nissim Mizrachi published in 2012 the book Responses to Stigmatization in Comparative Perspective (Routledge, col. Ethnic and Racial Studies) and a special issue of the Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal (vol. 35, issue 3) which offer a systematic qualitative cross-national exploration of how diverse minority groups respond to stigmatization in a wide variety of contexts. The issue sheds light on the range of destigmatization strategies ordinary people adopt in the course of their daily life. 9 Articles analyse the cultural frames they mobilize to make sense of their experiences and to determine how to respond; how they negociate and transform social and symbolic boundaries; and how responses are enabled and constrained by institutions, national ideologies, cultural repertoires and contexts.
Michèle Lamont is the Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies and Professor of Sociology and African and African American Studies at Harvard University.
