Author Biography - Martin D. Ruck

Martin D. Ruck (1994, University of Toronto) is an Associate Professor of Urban Education and Developmental Psychology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His work examines the overall process of cognitive socialization - at the intersection of race, ethnicity and class - in terms of children's and adolescents' thinking about human rights, educational opportunity and social justice. Over the past several years he has been examining the influence of social contexts (e.g., family, school and greater society) on the development of children's and young peoples' understanding of nurturance and self-determination rights. Currently, he is investigating how children's perceptions of social exclusion and discrimination are influenced by their social experiences and interpretations of rights and justice. His research on the topic of children's understanding of rights has appeared in Child Development, Journal of Adolescence, Journal of Applied Social Psychology, Journal of Early Adolescence, and Journal of Research on Adolescence. Stacey S. Horn (2000, University of Maryland) is an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology and Graduate Coordinator for the M.Ed. in Youth Development at University of Illinois at Chicago.
