Emily Unnasch plans to graduate with her M.A. from the Department of Gender and Race Studies in May 2011.

Her ongoing research focuses primarily on the effects of incarceration on mothers, and she hopes to work extensively with women involved in the Aid to Inmate Mothers program at Tutwiler Prison for Women over the course of this coming year.
