Reproductive Sociology Research Group


Chloe Sariego is an MPhil Candidate in the Department of Sociology. She currently conducts research under the supervision of Professor Sarah Franklin. She graduated with a B.A. in 2017 from Sarah Lawrence College and currently runs the department’s Queer Theory Reading Group (@cambqueertheory).


Chloe’s research interests seek to place reproduction at the center of questions about immigration and nationalism to understand specific manifestations of state-power. Her thesis uses critical discourse methods along with referential statistics to track developments in reproduction and immigration from the 1980s to the present in the United States. This research draws upon a variety of contexts in which reproduction figures centrally in contemporary nationalisms, especially problematizing the idea of “choice” and examining white supremacy’s historic use of birth control. Her research will culminate on an analysis of the detainment of a pregnant teen in Azar v. Garza and the history of sterilization in Madrigal v. Quilligan.


In her free time, she likes to discuss critical economics and read feminist utopian literature. You can keep up with her on twitter @chloesariego
