My recent book argues that immigration was a defining feature of early twentieth-century France, and that race, gender, and reproductive practices were central to the construction of French national identity. I explore interwar debates on pronatalism, prostitution, the marriage contract, racial mixing, and the rationalization of labor and the body to reveal the critical role of embodiment and gender politics to the “immigrant question,” and how the bodies at stake were always racialized. My current research fully internationalizes questions of gender, sexuality, and migration to explore sex trafficking between Europe and Latin America.
