Research Summary

Patricia's research sits at the intersection of black feminist theory and parenting culture studies, particularly attending to the intersectional politics of birth and breastfeeding and the development of parenting-related policies in a neoliberal context. Patricia is also interested in black feminist research methodologies. Her current project examines the development of parental leave policies (including maternity leave, paternity leave and newer shared parental leave) from an intersectional perspective.
