Forrest Stuart's research investigates how recent developments—specifically mass incarceration, zero-tolerance policing, digital social media, and new forms of music—have reshaped the social fabric of disadvantaged neighborhoods in the twenty-first century. This agenda has led to number of original research projects, community organizing efforts, and intervention programs. His research has been published in Urban Studies, Law and Social Inquiry, Souls, Annual Review of Law and Social Science, Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, and other venues. Throughout his work he makes efforts to embrace the ideals of public sociology, which enlists community members as valuable co-producers of knowledge. He also enjoys collaborating with graduate students throughout the data collection and writing processes. He is currently accepting graduate students who share his research interests and approaches.
