Madeline Fox is a doctoral candidate in Social-Personality Psychology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her research interests are in critical participatory research on youth experiences of structural inequalities and in research methodologies for provoking political solidarity. Maddy is the director of the Polling Justice Project, a participatory action research project on youth experiences at the intersections of education, criminal justice and public health in New York City. Launched in January 2008, the project carried out youth-generated research that informed demands for policy reform, especially in the areas of education, health and policing/criminal justice policy. Maddy and co-researchers practiced embodied, art-full methodologies to analyze and disseminate the findings from their research.  See Polling for Justice for more details, including a video of their work. Maddy co-edited the volume Telling Stories to Change the World: Global Voices on the Power of Narrative to Build Community and Make Social Justice Claims with Rickie Solinger and Kayhan Irani.
