Research

research overview

  • Professor Montoya’s research primarily focuses on the ways in which women and other marginalized groups mobilize to enact change. She is interested in how these groups work within and outside of political institutions, domestically and transnationally. Her work is informed by studies of social movements, public policy, political institutions, international organization, transnational politics, and gender and race politics. Her regional areas of specialization are Europe and the United States. She has written about European and global efforts to combat violence against women; gender in international relations; gender policy and politics in European countries; as well as Latino, gender, immigration, and voting politics in the United States. Her newer projects focus on intersectionality as it pertains to contemporary social movements, gendered violence, voting rights, and choosing political candidates.
