Dr. Singh’s thesis, “Emotional Labor from an Occupational Lens,” uses quantitative analysis to analyze the mental health impact of emotional labour on workers, using gender and racial lenses. Dr. Gouweloos’s thesis, “Staging Opposition: Performance and Power in the LGBTQ2+ Movement,” uses qualitative analysis of queer drag and cabaret performances to examine the intersectional prefigurative politics of marginalized segments of the LGBTQ2+ movement.
