Marianne Madoré

I am a PhD student in Sociology at the Graduate Center. In my research and through my teaching, I broadly wish to understand how regimes of oppression are being normalized and left unquestioned. Katherine McKittrick’s “Plantation Futures” helps me to articulate this: I am interested in what McKittrick’s calls our “collective participation in and rhetorical commitment to reproducing this system as though it is natural and inevitable.” My three areas of concentration are: feminist thoughts, global sociology, and racial ideologies.
