Dr Jacob Breslow


Assistant Professor, LSE Gender Studies, United Kingdom



I am an Assistant Professor of Gender and Sexuality at the London School of Economics’ Department of Gender Studies. My primary area of research is on contemporary U.S. social justice movements, and the ways in which the idea of childhood operates within and against them. Specifically, this work interrogates and thinks with Black Lives Matter, transfeminism, queer youth activism, and anti-deportation movements. My book on this research, published with the University of Minnesota Press, is titled Ambivalent Childhoods: Speculative Futures and the Psychic Life of the Child (2021).
