Uriel Serrano, PhD

sociology and critical race and ethnic studies phd • postdoctoral scholar

“Uriel Serrano is a vision for the future of sociology, specifically, and the academy, broadly. Uriel seamlessly weaves his research interests with youth of color organizing and the knowledge he gained outside of the academy to inform his community-engaged work. A brilliant theorist of intersectionality and masculinities, Uriel is engaging in path-breaking work on the possibilities and impossibilities of intersectional theories, while maintaining a passionate commitment to creating spaces of resistance and belonging for marginalized academics. Uriel offers us all an inspirational model for how to move in the academy.”

-Dr. Rocío R. García, Assistant Professor of Sociology, T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, Arizona State University

“Uriel Serrano is an exceptional graduate student that is bound to be a thought-leader in sociology and education. His supportive and collaborative nature at conferences, his advocacy for students and colleagues of color and his sharp intellect has earned him esteem among his peers and other senior scholars. He is part of a burgeoning movement of interdisciplinary scholars that identify as the Du Bois Scholar Network – a movement rooted in the academic and public work of W.E.B. Du Bois. This foundation undoubtedly drives Mr. Serrano’s innovative work in the academy and beyond.”
