Announcing the Visiting Scholar Class of 2024-2025

January 16, 2024

The Russell Sage Foundation is pleased to announce the selection of 16 visiting scholars for the 2024-2025 academic year. While in residence at RSF, they will pursue research and writing projects that reflect the foundation’s commitment to strengthening the social sciences and conducting research “for the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States.” Among the research topics of the multi-disciplinary group of scholars are projects exploring the impacts of deportation from the United States; a new theoretical account of immigrant integration; the role of trust as an overlooked dimension of racial inequality in education; how residents in poor urban communities work to mitigate poor conditions and create new opportunities; the importance of racial identity and racial ideologies in Latina/o politics; the psychological and structural barriers that prevent political agreement on climate policy; how workplace and residential environments influence racial disparities in policing; and whether the unexpected decline in inequality over the last decade might lead to lasting wage gains for low-wage workers.
