Dr. Kamphoefner teaches in the fields of immigration, urbanization, and quantitative methods. He has published widely in the field of immigration and ethnicity, with articles in four languages and three books out in both German and English. One of the pioneers of transatlantic linkage studies with his monograph The Westfalians: From Germany to Missouri (Princeton, 1987), he has now embarked on a larger project involving overseas tracing to multiple destinations, supported by an APS Sabbatical Fellowship last year. Other research interests include bilingual education and the immigrant language transition.
