Kevin Escudero is an Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnic Studies and an affiliated faculty member in the Sociology Department at Brown University. At the Swearer Center, he serves as the Faculty Director for the Royce Fellowship, a fellowship that supports undergraduate students' pursuit of independent research projects across a variety of disciplines and in various locations around the globe.

Professor Escudero's research interest focus on the areas of race/ethnicity, immigration and citizenship, law and social movements. His book manuscript, "Organizing While Undocumented," under contract with NYU Press, is a multi-sited ethnographic project examining undocumented immigrant youth's use of an intersectional movement identity in San Francisco, Chicago and New York City. At Brown, he offers courses with a public facing, community engaged framework, including: "Race in the Americas: A Hemispheric Perspective" and "Immigrant Social Movements: Bridging Theory and Practice."

Previously, Professor Escudero was a Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow in American Studies at Brown University and a Gauis Charles Bolin Dissertation Fellow in Latina/o Studies at Williams College. From 2016-2017 he served as the inaugural Faculty Fellow for the First-Gen Low Income Student Center's Undocumented Student Initiative.
