Roberto Gonzales is a Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Gonzales received his Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California. His research and teaching interests focus on: immigration; race and ethnicity; social inequality; and policy. Gonzales’ book, Lives in Limbo: Undocumented and Coming of Age in America (University of California Press), has won multiple academic awards, including the prestigious C. Wright Mills Award, which is given to the top social-science book in the field of social inequality.  Lives in Limbo examines the lives of 150 undocumented young adults in Los Angeles over a 12 year period. More recently, Gonzales’ work has focused on experiences of young adults following President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and educator responses to school climate issues stemming from immigration policies.

For the past 13 years, the Florida Society of the Social Sciences (F3S) has strived to provide a unique forum for students of the social sciences, humanities, and related interdisciplinary fields to engage with fellow scholars. The cornerstone of F3S’s efforts is the annual Conference of the Social Sciences, where over one hundred graduate students and several undergraduate students come together to discuss their work with a broad audience that crosses disciplines, professions, origins, and walks of life. The 13th Annual conference theme, Advancing Public Knowledge in a Changing Social Landscape, highlights the role of research in addressing social inequalities, cultivating a sense of hope, and providing more equitable solutions for the future.
