Nicole P. Marwell research sits at the intersection of three sociological subfields – urban, organizational, and political sociology – with a substantive focus on nonprofit organizations, local and state politics, and Latina/o communities. Prior to beginning her academic career, she worked in the field of nonprofits and philanthropy, first at New York City’s Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art, and then at the AT&T Foundation, the Levi Strauss Foundation, and Nike. She has published articles in the American Sociological Review, City and Community, Qualitative Sociology, and the Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly. She is a member of the Editorial Board of Contemporary Sociology. Her 2007 book, Bargaining for Brooklyn: Community Organizations in the Entrepreneurial City (University of Chicago Press) examines the varying roles of Latino community-based organizations in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Bushwick. Her current research on government contracting to nonprofit organizations is supported by the National Science Foundation. She is also working on a new book about the Latino middle class. Dr. Marwell previously taught at Columbia University and is a member of sociology faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center.
