About Rachel Hershberg

I have two main research interests. The first is the experiences of transnational and mixed-status migrant families throughout the U.S., and how family relationships are developed and maintained within such complex families and sociopolitical contexts. I am especially interested in the contributions of adolescents to their families and communities. My second area of research is the development of critical consciousness among adolescents and how critical consciousness and social justice-oriented development may be related to well-being in youth. I employ community-based and participatory research methods, involving families and adolescents, as well as community-based organizations and institutions, as collaborators in the research process.
