Department of Sociology

Madeline Moran

I teach introductory sociology and variable topics courses in both juvenile justice and American adoption policy. My primary research interests are criminology, minority groups in the United States, and international adoption. I have studied Italians in the U.S., Puerto Ricans on the mainland, juvenile delinquents in New York City, and children adopted internationally. Most recently I have co-authored five articles in peer reviewed journals that deal with questions of social justice in the adoption of children into and from the U.S.
