Laura Gómez, JD, Ph.D.
Dr. Gómez’ scholarship focuses on the intersection of law, politics and social stratification in both contemporary and historical contexts. In a new project, she will explore the contemporary legacy of that racial order for the scientific study of "race"; how has the right's co-optation of the fact that race is socially constructed promoted the reigning color-blind ideology and what does that mean for how scholars and policy-makers operationalize race?
