Reuel R. Rogers is an assistant professor of political science at Northwestern University. His primary research interests are race, ethnicity, urban politics, immigration, and African American politics, all within the field of American government. His current work explores how racial divisions shape the process by which groups become involved in politics at the local level.
During his fellowship year, Rogers will be working on a book manuscript exploring how racial-minority status and discrimination affect the process of political integration for Caribbean-born blacks in New York. He will also consider the case of Caribbean immigrants in Hartford, Connecticut, to assay how differences in local political context affect this process.
Rogers received his PhD from Princeton University and his BA from Brandeis University. He was a dissertation research fellow with both the Social Science Research Council and the Ford Foundation.
