Graduate Student | PhD Candidate
Contact: Jose Longoria
Being born and raised in Miami, FL I carry a special attachment to South Florida and for that reason I have focused my efforts on improving conditions in the area. I received a BA and MA from Florida International University in Sociology, with my research interest being in Urban Sociology, Urban Political Economy, and the restructuring of employment relationships. Being equally passionate about research and educational instruction I have served as a graduate teaching assistant at FIU as well as a social science teacher for Miami Dade County Public Schools. For my dissertation I am analyzing the temporary staffing industry as an important component of a neoliberal work environment.
