"A Dream Denied: Incarceration, Recidivism, and Young Minority Men"
Michaela Soyer received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Justice Center for Research at Penn State University. Her current work focuses on delinquency, incarceration, recidivism and social theory. Currently, Michaela is engaged in data collection for several collaborative mixed method projects about inmate networks and their significance for reentry and recidivism.
