Dr. Faustina M. DuCros was a 2017-2018 Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellow. She earned her Ph.D. and M.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Los Angeles and her B.A. in Sociology from CSU Long Beach. Dr. DuCros's research and teaching interests include race and ethnicity, sociology of Black communities, internal migration and immigration, education, the sociology of Latina/o/x communities, mixed race, media representations, and qualitative methods. Her research has examined Great Migration-era Louisiana migrants in Los Angeles and the ways in which migration, community, and place shape their racial and ethnic identities. The next phase of the Louisiana Migrants in California project is examining the experiences of Louisiana migrants in the Bay Area. Dr. DuCros is also collaborating on a study of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in prime time television and streaming media.
