Jae-Lynn Deanna Tavarez Brown
I am a first-year graduate student in anthropology and am very passionate about my research focus on the experiences of incarcerated people and using ethnography as a tool for this work. Currently serving as a graduate teaching assistant for Dr. Haagen Klaus's Sacrifice, War, and Violence class. I also am working on a certificate in conflict analysis and resolution with a concentration in collaborative community action. My educational background which sparked my current research interests include African diasporic studies, Black feminist theories, colonial implications of anthropological origins, and Marxist theories.
Let's talk about restorative justice models, prison abolition, and criminal legal reform (:
