MAIO, Marcos Chor  and  LOPES, Thiago Da Costa. Between Chicago and Salvador: Donald Pierson and the sociology of race relations. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2017, vol.30, n.60, pp.115-140. ISSN 2178-1494.

This paper analyses, from a transnational historical perspective, the study of race relations undertaken by American sociologist Donald Pierson in the city of Salvador, Bahia, between 1935 and 1937, as part of his PhD dissertation in the University of Chicago. We hold the hypothesis that the way Pierson conducts his analysis of the vast empirical material collected in Bahia, as well as his general propositions, can be fully grasped only if one takes into consideration both his dialogues with Brazilian social scientists and his underlying conceptual framework, linked to Robert Park's research agenda.

Keywords : Donald Pierson; transnational history; race relations; Chicago School of Sociology; racism.
