Basia Ellis is a postdoctoral scholar who is studying the everyday lives of undocumented youth living in Chicago. Her research traces how unequal sociocultural and political contexts shape the possibilities for social and psychological life, as well as how persons create new social spaces despite/because of their unique social challenges and opportunities. Theoretically her work is informed by social epistemological principles and her research employs ethnographic and participatory action research methods to work collaboratively with her participants to generate social change.
