2023 Doctoral Fellow

Aaron Kemmerer, MSW
Doctoral Candidate
Virginia Commonwealth University School of Social Work

Aaron’s research interests focus on marginalized communities and housing instability in the U.S. South. He is specifically interested in systemic economic barriers that disproportionately affect transgender people. His dissertation will focus on experiences of housing instability among transgender and gender expansive (TGE) people in the U.S. South. The proposed project aims to better understand TGE Southerners' experiences with housing instability and the mutual aid networks developed to support this population.

Applications for the next cohort of doctoral student awardees are due October 20th. Guidelines are available here.
