Dr. Victoria Reyes is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Riverside. She received her PhD from Princeton’s Department of Sociology in January 2015, and was a 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan. She previously taught in Bryn Mawr College’s Growth and Structure of Cities Department. Her research focuses on boundaries; how they are created and remade as well as how they shape inequality in global settings, and she has examined these processes as they relate to leisure migration, cultural politics, sovereignty, and legally plural, foreign-controlled places she calls “global borderlands.”
