Activities and Interests

I am currently working on a book manuscript which investigates U. S. practices of passing and linked strategies of policing issuing from such disciplinary sites as law, bioscience, sociology, anthropology, literature, photography, film and other popular media all of which aim secure lines of color, class, sexuality, and gender in the name of national health. The study focuses on three sociohistorical moments, namely: the turn of the previous century; the cold war, and the turn of this century. The book project reflects my commitment to a cultural studies methodology and ongoing interests in critical race studies, queer studies, feminism, and (trans)nationalism.
