My master’s thesis examined how undocumented Latina/o/x youth activists negotiate and reconcile the consequences of strategically deploying a political identity — the DREAMer — that conflicts with their personal identity and values. In the future, I’m looking to expand on my research by including the perspectives of state legislators and other state actors to study how claims for immigrant rights and citizenship shape our current understandings of race and racism.
