Abigail Boggs, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Wesleyan University, joins us for our first FUC event this fall.

Abigail is currently revising her first book manuscript, American Futures: International Students and the U.S. University, which provides a critical genealogy of the figure of the international student in university policy, federal immigration law, and U.S. popular culture. She is also working with Eli Meyerhoff, Nick Mitchell, and Zach Scwartz-Weinstein on a project developing a framework for abolitionist university studies (more information at abolition.university).

Her writing has appeared in the Barnard Center for Research and Women's Scholar and the Feminist, American Quarterly, and Feminist Studies as well as the edited collection Mobile Desires: The Politics and Erotics of Mobility Justice. She is on the editorial board for Abolition: A Journal of Insurgent Politics and has served on the steering committee for the Five College Center for Research on Women and the American Studies Association's Program Committee.
