Race, class and gender; racism; whiteness; higher education; feminist theory
I am interested in whiteness and how it is reinforced within institutions, especially higher education. Additionally, I am interested in the ways people of color navigate and subvert these structures and the ways white people leverage their pre existing social capital to maintain their privileged positions.
