Gina Marie Longo, Ph.D., received her doctorate from the Department of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Her research agenda contributes to knowledge about digital spaces, intersectional identities, citizenship, nationalism and inequality with implications for the sociologies of migration, gender, race and politics. She recently completed her postdoctoral research position on the Access to Justice Project at the University of Wisconsin, Madison’s Law School, which explores the challenges to self-representation that low-income, non-custodial parents experience throughout child support court.
