Prof. Glenn's scholarly work focuses on the dynamics of race, gender, and class in processes of inequality and exclusion. Her early research documented the work and family lives of heretofore neglected women of color in domestic service and women in clerical occupations. This work drew her into historical research on the race and gender structure of local labor markets and the consequences of labor market position on workers, including the forms of resistance available to them. Most recently she has engaged in comparative analysis of race and gender in the construction of labor and citizenship across different regions of the United States.
