Interdisciplinary Immigration Workshop member

Douglas Epps is a doctoral student at the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Social Welfare. He holds a dual bachelor’s degree in psychology and social welfare (magna cum laude) and a Master of Social Work from the University of Washington. His research applies a critical, action-oriented framework to interrogate the rise of punitive immigration responses and envision macro alternatives that respect the dignity and worth of all human beings. His current project seeks to understand how collective action framing can influence public attitudes toward eliminating immigration detention.
Douglas’s published work has been featured in Smith College Studies in Social Work, Social Work & Society and the San Francisco Chronicle. He has also co-edited three books: Detaining the Immigrant Other: Global and Transnational Issues (2016) and Health Care Social Work: A Global Perspective (2019) with Oxford University Press and The Immigrant Other: Lived Experiences in a Transnational World (2016) with Columbia University Press.
