Robert E. Park’s concept of the marginal man has been a remarkably fruitful source  of  intellectual  stimulation  in  American  sociology  over  the  past  eight decades;  in  this  respect  the  1928  essay  in  which  he  originally  presented  the concept  surely  qualifi es  as  a  sociological  classic.  More  remarkable  still,  though Park’s  concept  undoubtedly  needs  further  revision,  its  potential  for  intellectual stimulation is apparently not yet exhausted. A number of scholars have extended  Park’s notion of the marginal man beyond his original focus on race and ethnic relations to a broader range of social phenomena, including occupations, gender, and scientifi c innovation. Others, recognizing that Park anticipated contemporary
sociological   interest   in   globalization,   immigration,   cultural   hybridity,   and multiculturalism, have returned to the concept in recent years to gain insight into the  present-day  movement  and  interpenetration  of  peoples.  These  trends  are reviewed, and some suggestions are made in the conclusion of the essay for future research that would build upon and extend them.
