About

ABF_Dec2014_063.JPG

Welcome to my official home on the web. My name is Kasey Henricks, and I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

 

My research interests lie in understanding how racial inequalities are reproduced over time through institutional arrangements sponsored by tax policy. More specifically, I have a research agenda that can be divided into a two-fold examination of: 1) the ways face-neutral tax laws yield racially disparate consequences in the distribution of tax liability, and 2) how racial ideology discursively shapes, and becomes shaped by, conflicts over taxation.

 

I have been privileged to receive accolades from The National Academies, American Sociological Association, and Society for the Study of Social Problems. My work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, Law and Society Association, and American Bar Foundation as well as featured in over 15 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.

 

Evolving out of the master’s thesis, my first book (co-authored with David G. Embrick) is entitled State Looteries: Historical Continuities, Rearticulations of Racism, and American Taxation (Routledge, 2016). Contact can be directed to me at khenricks@abfn.org.
