Professor María G. Rendón is a sociologist who examines the integration process of Latino immigrants and their children in the United States. She pays close attention to role of spatial inequality and examines how urban neighborhoods shape life trajectories, particularly educational attainment and social mobility. She is the author of Stagnant Dreamers: How the Inner City Shapes the Integration of Second Generation Latinos, a longitudinal study that follows a group of Latino young men as they transition to adulthood. Based on in-depth interviews and ethnographic observations with them and their immigrant parents, Stagnant Dreamers describes the challenges they face coming of age in the inner city and accessing higher education and good jobs and demonstrates how family-based social ties and community institutions can serve as buffers against neighborhood violence, chronic poverty, incarceration, and other negative outcomes. Stagnant Dreamers has received several awards by the American Sociological Association, including the Robert E. Park Award,(Community and Urban Sociology section); Distinguished Contribution to Research Book Award (Latina/o Sociology);  Honorable Mention for the Thomas and Znaniecki Best Book Award (International Migration); and was a finalist for the Pierre Bourdieu Book Award(Sociology of Education). Stagnant Dreamers is also a finalist for an International Latino Book Award under the category Victor Villaseñor Latino Focused Nonfiction Book Award.
