Mary Romero, Professor of Justice Studies and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University, will present "In Search of an Inclusive Approach to Carework." Professor Romero's research focuses on the unequal distribution of reproductive labor as a paid commodity and its role in reproducing inequality among families. Embedded in feminist legal scholarship on caregiving, her research explores questions from a legal perspective. She is the recipient of the American Sociological Association, Race and Ethnic Minorities 2009 Founders Award for career excellence in scholarship and service, the 2004 Lee Founders Award for the Study of Social Problems for a career of activist scholarship, and is a former Carnegie Scholar. She is the author of "The Maid's Daughter: Living Inside and Outside the American Dream" (NYU Press, 2011) and "Maid in the U.S.A." (Routledge 1992, Tenth Anniversary Edition 2002).
