Justine Modica is a PhD candidate in United States History. Her research examines the history of child care labor from the 1970s to the early 2000s. She looks at how various constituencies, including nanny professionalization organizations, immigrant rights advocacy groups, federal agencies, municipal task forces, nanny and domestic worker placement agencies, and labor unions defined the value of child care labor and, in doing so, articulated a vision of how American children should be raised and who should raise them. She is also completing a PhD minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
