José G. Soto-Márquez is a doctoral candidate in the sociology department at New York University. His doctoral research focuses on studying the broader identity, social, and labor market pathways of Spanish immigrants in the United States, Argentina, and the United Kingdom. Overall, his comparative dissertation project consists of ethnographic observations of and in-depth interviews with Spanish immigrants, who left Spain after the 2008 financial crisis for one of three different global cities (i.e., New York City, Buenos Aires, or London). An article from his dissertation titled “‘I’m not Spanish, I’m from Spain’: Spaniards’ Bifurcated Ethnicity and the Boundaries of Whiteness and Hispanic Panethnic Identity” is forthcoming in Sociology of Race and Ethnicity. His other current research projects center on determining the risk factors associated with sexual assault on college campuses for LGBT students. The first of these projects titled “Sexual Assault Victimization Among Straight Gay/Lesbian, and Bisexual College Students” was recently published in Violence and Gender. Prior to joining NYU, he worked as a social science research assistant at the Stanford School of Medicine. At NYU, he has been a GRI fellow at NYU London and is currently a doctoral fellow at the Urban Democracy Lab in the Gallatin School.
