About me

Andrea Voyer is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Stockholm University.  

Prior to joining the faculty of Stockholm University, Voyer was a Russell Sage Foundation Visiting Scholar and an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Connecticut. She has held appointments as Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University, Research Fellow at Linnaeus University in Växjö, Sweden, and Assistant Professor of Sociology at Pace University in New York City. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


Voyer is a cultural sociologist whose research focuses on processes of social inclusion and exclusion on the basis of immigration, race, and class. Her current research, funded by the Russell Sage Foundation, is a qualitative study of inter-class interactions in three community settings in New York City – a neighborhood council, a church, and a PTA. She is also conducting a computational sociological analysis of all 19 editions of Emily Post’s Etiquette for information that social norms provide about symbolic boundaries and social inequality. Strangers and Neighbors: Multiculturalism, Conflict, and Community in America, Voyer’s past ethnography of Somali immigrant inclusion in Lewiston, Maine, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2013. She has also conducted and published research on immigrant inclusion in Sweden.
