Carlos Figueroa is an assistant professor of politics who holds a Ph.D. in both Politics and Historical Studies from The New School for Social Research, an M.S. in General Administration from Central Michigan University, and B.A. in Political Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Florham Park/Madison, N.J.  He has engaged in working class politics, labor organizing/collective bargaining and urban activism since the late 1980s, which inform his intellectual, research and teaching work. 

He is currently working on a book project titled Political Ecumenism: Quakers, Race and U.S. Insular Policy Discourses in the Early Twentieth Century that provides an historical and discursive analysis of U.S. Quaker interventions into national political debates and policy controversies over the civic status of inherited 'nonwhite' peoples in acquired overseas territories -- within the context of an emerging modern U.S. imperialist state -- as a way to understand the connections between collective citizenship/civic membership, institutional and ascriptive status politics at the confluence of race, religion and policy development.
