Research and Teaching Areas
Dr. Deckard's scholarship investigates the ways in which exclusion is constructed in neoliberal contexts. Given the convergence of criminal and migration law, she draws on and extends theory in Critical Criminology, Migration, and Political Sociology to make sense of the lived realities of marginalized groups at the global level. Dr. Deckard has worked to illuminate this area of enquiry through work in a variety of cases, including women imprisoned in Paraguay, Latinx migrants victimized in the US, Puerto Rican nationalists repressed on the island and the mainland, and Nigerian separatists narrated as terrorists. She is currently at work on a book positing the multi-generational ramifications of the creation of criminalized identities.
