Forrest Stuart is an Associate Professor of Sociology and the director of the Stanford Ethnography Lab. As an urban ethnographer, he uses fieldwork, archival, and other qualitative methods to investigate the causes, contours, and consequences of urban poverty.
 
In the spirit of the Chicago School of Sociology, he pays close attention to the ways that individuals and communities make sense of their social worlds. This agenda has led to number of original research projects, community organizing efforts, and intervention programs. He makes efforts to embrace the ideals of public sociology, which enlists community members as valuable co-producers of knowledge.
