Vikki S. Katz

Associate Professor of Communication, Rutgers University

Katz will examine how immigration status and migration history affect the experiences of low-income Latino parents who are facing allegations of child abuse or neglect in the Bronx Family Court. Using data from a 26-month ethnographic study, she will explore how immigrant families make sense of their court involvement, how they navigate and understand court mandates, and the extent to which the courts is managing to address the needs of a diverse Latino population.
