Reimagining the Latinx Experience in America: Professor María Rendón on Stagnant Dreamers: How the Inner City Shapes the Integration of Second-Generation Latinos

In Stagnant Dreamers, sociologist and social policy expert María Rendón follows 42 young men from two high-poverty Los Angeles neighborhoods as they transition into adulthood. 

María Rendón is Associate Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy at the University of California, Irvine. As an urban scholar, Dr. Rendón has made important contributions to understand how residential segregation and poverty concentration affects Latino immigrants and their children. This includes examining the role of urban violence, criminalization and racialization processes in the lives of Latinos, as well as how social networks and institutions alleviate or aggravate the consequences of American spatial inequalities.
