Tripodi Research Lecture Series: Understanding Asylum Intersectionally — The Case for Domestic Violence as a Transnational Health Issue
University of Southern California Professor and Chair of Gender Studies Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro will present "Understanding Ayslum Intersectionally: The Case for Domestic Violence as a Transnational Health Issue" for Berkeley Social Welfare's 2018 Tripodi Research Lecture.
Comparatively few intersectional studies attempt to incorporate the principles of intersectionality into their research design and data analysis protocols. This project tests a specific design and data analysis strategy to consider domestic violence’s transnational impact on asylum requests in the United States.
Dr. Hancock Alfaro is a globally recognized scholar of intersectionality theory, the world’s leading analytical framework for analyzing and resolving inequality. She has written numerous articles and three books on the intersections of categories of difference like race, gender, class, sexuality and citizenship and their impact on policy.
