About Me

Julia Jordan-Zachery’s interdisciplinary research focuses primarily on African American women and public policy. My research analyses the nexus of race, gender, class, sexuality and public policy.  I am also interested in how Black women “perform” intersectionality from an intra-group perspective.  This analysis looks at how Black women talk about and respond to social and political issues affecting Black women. In essence, my research seeks to unmask hidden power relations that directly and indirectly influence the lived experiences of Black women.
