Hancock is a globally recognized scholar of the study of intersectionality – the study of the intersections of race, gender, class and sexuality politics and their impact on public policy. Her first book, The Politics of Disgust and the Public Identity of the “Welfare Queen”, won two national awards. Her current book, Solidarity Politics for Millennials: A Guide to Ending the Oppression Olympics uses popular culture and recent survey data to analyze the contemporary challenges of immigration and same-sex marriage and contends that the development of deep political solidarity is necessary to overcome persistent political challenges in U.S. politics.
