Roberto F. Carlos
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Georgia in Athens.
Before arriving in Georgia, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Ethnicity, Race, and Immigration at the University of Pennsylvania.
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago in June 2018
I am a scholar of race, ethnicity, and politics, and I am particularly interested in Latinx politics, immigration, political behavior, and socialization.
I focus on the political, social, and familial implications of the often-ignored political socialization process of the children of immigrants. Unlike many studies on political socialization that focus on the political values and behaviors transmitted from parents to children, I show that the children of immigrants play a crucial role in shaping their parents’ behaviors and beliefs, creating a complex process of political socialization.
