PhD Candidate
Primary office:
203D Bailey


Kathryn Vaggalis is a PhD candidate in the Department of American Studies at the University of Kansas and currently works as Managing Editor of the peer-reviewed journal Women, Gender, and Families of Color. Her general area of study is late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century race, gender, and immigration. Her current work focuses on the experiences and receptions of Greek and Japanese picture brides and families to demonstrate the influences of white heteronormativity on turn-of-the-century immigration policies and constructions of U.S. citizenship and belonging. Her work is interdisciplinary, combining historical methods with discourse analysis and critical race and queer theory.
