Multiracial Parents: Mixed Families, Generational Change and the Future of Race

Miri Song, Professor of Sociology, was interviewed about her research and book, 'Multiracial Parents: Mixed Families, Generational Change and the Future of Race', on the BBC Radio 4 programme ‘Thinking Allowed’ yesterday.

Multiracial Parents considers how mixed-race parents identify with and draw from their cultural backgrounds in raising and socialising their children. By drawing on detailed narratives about the parents' children and family lives, Miri explores what it means to be multiracial.

Thinking Allowed is a radio discussion programme focusing on the latest social science research. It is hosted by Laurie Taylor, who was formerly Professor of Sociology at the University of York.

The programme, Mixed-race families, is available on BBC iPlayer Radio.
