Multiculturalism in Action Brown Bag Series, ft. Joan Antunes, PhD

Residential mobility can have many positive effects on children, youth, and adults including reduction in victimization, criminal involvement, and receipt of welfare; increased employment and adult income; better health; and improved parenting practices. However, it may also be linked to detrimental outcomes including adverse mental health and increased exposure to community violence and violent victimization and involvement in violent behavior. The project assesses the extent to which moving within a city affects minority (racial and ethnic) and immigrant youth experiences, particularly in relation to changes in their neighborhood including collective efficacy; a major characteristic shaping community crime rates and youth violence. This study specifically examines whether vertical mobility (upward or downward changes in neighborhood context) or horizontal mobility (no changes in neighborhood context) influence youth victimization and violence.

The Multiculturalism in Action Brown Bag Series is focused on showcasing the multicultural and diversity related scholarly activities taking place on Towson University's campus. This is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to meet and engage with each other around multicultural scholarship in a supportive space.
