Caitlin Patler Receives the Pacific Sociological Association’s Distinguished Contribution to Sociological Perspectives Award

Caitlin Patler, an assistant professor of sociology, whose research focuses on migration, inequality and “crimmigration,” recently received the Pacific Sociological Association’s Distinguished Contribution to Sociological Perspectives Award.

The award recognized “To Reveal or Conceal: How Diverse Undocumented Youth Navigate Legal Status Disclosure,” the paper she published in the association’s journal last year.

The paper stemmed from Patler’s research on when and under what circumstances diverse undocumented youths reveal or conceal their status from school-based adults and peers, what factors influence those decisions, and how they are linked to social and educational outcomes.
