Teaching and Supervision

Research interests

Dagmar is keen to supervise PhD students in the area of her research, which intersects law, migration, and race/ethnicity studies. She’s especially interested in qualitative studies of equality, anti-discrimination or immigration laws (in the UK, US, or EU) that apply critical analytical frameworks (critical race studies, LatCrit, whiteness studies, outsider jurisprudence, or postcolonial studies). She welcomes interdisciplinary applications that engage with legal issues as well as sociology, politics, migration studies or history.
