Allyson Hobbs is an assistant professor in the Department of History at Stanford University.  She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and she received a PhD with distinction from the University of Chicago. Currently, she is finishing a book that examines the phenomenon of racial passing in the United States from the late eighteenth century to the present.  Allyson’s book is titled A Chosen Exile: A History of Racial Passing in American Life and it is forthcoming from Harvard University Press in the fall of 2014.  Allyson is very excited about building the San Francisco/Bay Area chapter of HBAS and she looks forward to connecting with more alums in the area.
