Broadly conceived, her research examines the cultural, social, and historical processes through which bodies, nations, and their borders take shape in the U.S. As an ISPS Graduate Policy Fellow, she will be researching how the use of assisted reproductive technologies in multi-status, queer families impacts the Immigration and Nationality Act’s hetero-normalization of sex-cells in birthright citizenship cases adjudicated in the United States.

Demar Lewis, Grad Policy Fellow

Demar Lewis is a PhD student in the Departments of Sociology and African American Studies at Yale. Broadly, Demar is interested in analyzing how communities that have experienced historical and contemporary forms of violence—as a consequence of structural racism and/or state-sanctioning—are associated with communities where trauma, crime, and social inequities are most resilient today. His research focuses on investigating the national phenomena of 19th and 20th Century U.S. lynchings and 21st Century fatal police-citizen encounters.
