CPC Fellow Krista Perreira named a Russell Sage Visiting Scholar for 2008-2009

Nov 7, 2008

Krista M. Perreira, CPC Fellow and Associate Professor of Public Policy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, will synthesize six years of research into a comprehensive book on Latino immigration to the American South. Focusing on what we can learn about "new" immigrant destinations, Perreira will assess the migration and acculturation experiences of Latino youth and their parents in the South. Perreira will also evaluate how non-Latino youth and their families are responding to the recent influx of Latino immigrants. In addition, Perreira's book will probe how the social contexts of Latino immigrant reception are influencing the health and academic adaptation of Latino adolescents.
