The Wake Forest University Department of Sociology will host a research presentation by Rianka Roy, PhD candidate at the University of Connecticut, on Monday, November 6, at 3:30 pm in 101 Kirby Hall. A reception will follow in the Sociology Lounge.
Rianka Roy studies how globalization and technology create new forms of work, new pathways of migration, and new goals and strategies of collective action. Rianka’s transnational research falls at the intersection of labor, migration, technology, labor movements, and social movements. She uses the sociological scholarship of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and global intersectionality to understand how social inequalities are reproduced in globalization, and how new forms of resistant emerge, along with new identities of work.
