I research human language and gesture as a system of tools for social interaction. My interest is both in the universal features of the system grounded in the common infrastructure of human interaction and in its variable features driven by the local resources and norms of particular cultural and social settings

Cecilia Menjívar

In general, I focus on the structural roots of inequalities and on how individuals’ social locations shape their responses to such conditions. The theoretical strand connecting my work centers on the state and its actions: how state power manifests--through legal regimes, bureaucracies, and formal institutions--in the microprocesses of everyday life in various contexts.
