Brandon Buchanan

Position Title
Graduate Student in Sociology with D.E in Feminist Theory and Research



Brandon is a currently a fourth year graduate student in sociology at UC Davis. Their* research interests lie in the areas of transnational sociology; race/ethnicity; gender; homonationalism; and the impacts of globalization. Uniting social activism and scholarly research, Brandon has focused on connecting racial projects and queer categorization to new forms of social control. This is reflected in their current project on kinship, queerness, and race within the context of the Desi community in the Bay Area. This particular site of interest serves to highlight the confluence of identity politics, post-colonialism, and capitalism - as a site for the modern emergence of universal bodies. 

*I identify as genderqueer and use they/them pronouns so this isn't a typo.
