Research Interests

My research focuses on conceptualizations of race, the production of racial categories, and the material consequences of these formations, particularly vis-a-vis international migration. It is broadly qualitative and utilizes a variety of methods including oral histories, archival work, discourse analysis, interviews, and life and work histories. Much of my work has examined immigrant settlement in new destinations across the U.S. and the reworkings of race, ethnicity, and belonging this migration has precipitated in workplaces, public schools, residential neighborhoods, and other social spaces. I also have an ongoing collaboration with Barbara Ellen Smith, professor of sociology and women's and gender studies at Virginia Tech. Together, we have examined the intertwining practices of flexible labor and social reproduction for working-class residents in the U.S. South. Blending an analysis of neoliberal globalization's flexible-labor demands and an interrogation of social reproduction's spatial forms and politics, this research investigates what is at stake in increasingly tense political and social dynamics vis-a-vis immigration across the rural South.

In addition to these main projects, I have interests in the historical geographies of the U.S. South, particularly the links between the Reconstruction South and 19th-century imperialism, and the role of postcolonial theory in thinking about human geographies. I also frequently write about critical pedagogy and human geography.

I am working on a new introduction to cultural geography. This book will address a number of themes from the role of social media in the production of cultural geographies and cultural politics to the intertwining of spaces of work and leisure, practices of production and social reproduction, in the world around us. It incorporates both recent theoretical debates in cultural geography around topics such as non-representational theory and mobility studies and recent political and social developments around the world such as the Occupy movement and healthcare debates. Work on this book has led to a new research interest in new and social media.
