Broadly, my research takes a sociocultural approach to issues of discrimination and oppression, locating the source of these issues in both cultural products and individual minds. This approach highlights the degree to which these two sources are inextricably linked; the individual is both shaped by the cultural world and plays a role in the reproduction of reality. In particular, I am interested in the mutual relationship between identity and oppression. For example, recognizing oppression may influence how we think about ourselves while at the same time these understandings may limit conceptions of what does (and what does not) constitute oppression.
