Stephen Ruszczyk, assistant professor, received a PhD from the City University of New York. He has three ongoing research projects. The first, which uses longitudinal ethnography, is a comparison of undocumented youths coming of age in Paris and New York and their local contexts of immigrant "illegality." This project was supported by the “Settling into Motion” Bucerius Ph.D. Scholarships in Migration Studies and the Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latino Studies of the City University of New York. Publications on this theme have appeared in Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, American Behavioral Scientist, Law & Society Review, Comparative Migration Studies, Metropolitics, Sociological Forum, and Migration Studies.
The second, multi-method project compares the impact of organizations on the social lives of Dominican residents in Upper Manhattan and the West Bronx. This project has received support from Montclair State University. A third project uses PAR methods to examine the process of participatory budgeting in Upper Manhattan City Council districts and public housing projects.
He teaches general courses including Social Problems and Foundations and topical courses including Urban Sociology, Latinas and Latinos in the U.S., Immigration, Urban Social Policy, and Community Development and Housing.
