Sarah Tosh (BA, 2009, Sociology and Political Science) completed her doctorate in sociology this spring at CUNY Graduate Center and will begin her professional career as a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice at Rutgers University-Camden in the fall of 2019. Her dissertation concerns the processes of demonization of immigrants by associating them with crime that began in the U.S. in the 1980s, and the public policy consequences of those processes. From that work she has recently published “Drugs, Crime, and Aggravated Felony Deportations: Moral Panic Theory and the Legal Construction of the ‘Criminal Alien’” in the journal Critical Criminology.
