Christopher Maggio CV


Professor Maggio received his Ph.D. in Sociology from the Graduate Center, City University of New York. His primary research interests are around race and immigration. His dissertation examined the impact of recent racial demographic changes at the local level on voting outcomes, immigration attitudes, and perceptions of racism. More recent work has addressed racial hierarchy in immigration attitudes and public opinion on “open borders." He is currently working on a project studying global migration aspirations with a particular focus on immobility.
