Profile
Description: 

Susanna Rosenbaum is assistant professor of Anthropology in the Department of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and Director of the MA in the Study of the Americas. Her research and teaching center immigration, race, and citizenship; gendered labor and neoliberalism; kinship and reproduction; and the Americas. Her book Domestic Economies: Women, Work, and the American Dream in Los Angeles (2017) examines how Mexican and Central American domestic workers and their primarily white employers seek to acheive the American Dream. Juxtaposing these two groups, it illustrates how immigrant and native-born women work towards that ideal, how each is indespensable to the other's quest, and the abiding importance of reproductive labor to this pursuit.
