Professor Ricourt’s early research was the ethnographic work she conducted in the New Immigrants and Old American Project of Queens College, City University of New York, directed by Roger Sanjek. Her dissertation and book Hispanas de Queens were based on the ethnographic work conducted in Corona, Queens as part of this project. She conducted additional research in Washington Heights while doing a post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Milano School of Urban Studies at the New School. The data collected produced the book Power from the Margins. Other research includes Dominican peasantry, domestic violence in the Dominican community of Washington Heights, New York City, and Dominican undocumented immigration to Puerto Rico.
