Lynne Haney

Professor of Sociology, New York University

Haney will study the relationship between mass incarceration and the enforcement of child support at the federal, state, and local levels. She will use an ethnographic study of child support courts in three states and interviews with 150 formerly incarcerated fathers to explore how both child support debt and ongoing contact with the criminal justice system contribute to cycles of disadvantage and shape their identities as fathers.
