(Antonio) Rubio Goldsmith, Pat Professor and Interim Head


I study Latinx, race, education, school/neighborhood segregation, immigration and state violence. I have published research in some of the top journals in sociology and education, including Sociology of Education, Social Forces, Social Problems and the American Educational Research Journal. I am currently studying how well the spatial assimilation theory accounts for the residential attainment of young Latinx; how the immigration status of Mexican immigrant parents affects their children's educational attainment, and how theories of racialization and assimilation account for variation in Latinx achievement in new and traditional destinations.
