On sabbatical, 2022-2023

I study the political economy of incarceration in the United States from Reconstruction to the present. I am particularly interested in how agricultural labor markets, migration, and struggles over land and labor have affected incarceration and racial and class inequality in incarceration. I have also written on the causes and effects of environmental inequality and inequality in death from infectious disease.
