He is the author of seminal books and articles and the former editor of a prominent international  social science book series on race and ethnicity which have influenced the thinking of sociologically oriented intellectuals  and policy makers across generations  in the Western Hemisphere, Africa, Europe, and Asia interested in sociology of knowledge concerns for  how intellectuals develop their epistemologies, theories, methods, and applications in culturally divided communities and societies.

Professor Stanfield has dedicated much of his research and scholarship to recovering indigenous epistemologies of global  African descendent intellectual thought in Western canons and as alternative explanations of human experiences in the  biological and social sciences and in the history of  tropical medical research and practices in Africa. He has also written extensively on the ethics and politics of infectious disease research in the history of sociological conceptions of U.S. southern blacks and black Africans; on the historical sociology of Jim Crow medicine and healthcare in the United States supported by philanthropic foundations prior to World War II;  and  the comparative sociological history of “race” in Brazil, Great Britain, India, Rwanda, South Africa, and United States. Most recently he has not only been researching cross-national comparisons in multicultural restorative justice issues but also  comparative indigenous origins of  democratic nation- building in African and Western Hemispheric nations.
