Domingo Morel is an assistant professor of political science at Rutgers University, Newark. He holds a PhD (2014) in political science from Brown University. As a scholar of race and ethnic politics, urban politics, and representation, his work examines how state policies help expand or diminish political inequality among historically marginalized populations. His first book, Takeover: Race, Education, and American Democracy (Oxford University Press, 2017) recently received the W.E.B DuBois Distinguished Book Award from the Conference of Black Political Scientists. Some of his other scholarship has appeared in Urban Affairs Review and Political Research Quarterly. He also co-edited the volume Latino Mayors: Power and Political Change in the Postindustrial City (Temple University Press, 2019). His pipeline of current projects examines the racial politics of municipal pension reform policies and subnational efforts to expand college access to underrepresented populations.
