My research focuses on work and family policy in the U.S. from a sociolegal perspective. I also study gender, race and ethnicity in U.S. politics.
Some projects I have recently been working on that are due in print soon:
My book, The Balance Gap: Working Mothers and the Limits of the Law is forthcoming with Stanford University Press in early 2017.
An article “Hilary Clinton, Symbolic Empowerment and Intragroup Emotion” (with Evelyn Simien) is forthcoming in DuBois Review in 2017.
An edited volume, Mothers, Military and Society (with Udi Lebel and Nancy Tabor) is forthcoming with Demeter Press in 2017.
