  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Jenny Enos received her B.A. in Sociology and Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies from Gettysburg College (2018) and her M.A. in Sociology from Rutgers University (2020). Her main research interests are anti-immigrant sentiment, ethnoracial bias, and extreme-right political parties in Europe. Jenny's M.A. thesis examined how increases in immigrants from Muslim-majority countries during the refugee crisis and unemployment rates led to increases in extreme-right voting in Sweden between 2014 and 2018, using the theory of "group threat". Her current and future research investigates the individual-level cognitive processes behind anti-immigrant sentiment and ethnoracial bias, in addition to how gender and sexuality play a role in constructing immigrant threat perceptions among Whites/natives.
