Patrice Collins

Patrice D. Collins is a PhD candidate in the department of Sociology.  Her research focuses on urban ethnography, parental incarceration, and social and racial inequality. Specifically, Patrice uses an ethnographic lens to examine the social worlds of families that experience the collateral consequences of parental arrest and incarceration in their everyday life. Patrice is also interested in the social health of impoverished Black communities with multigenerational cycles of parental incarceration. As an ISPS Graduate Policy fellow, Patrice will focus on the ways in which policymakers strive to support and safeguard children and families with incarcerated parents.
