Jacqueline Stevens is Associate Professor at the Game, Culture, and Technology Lab, University of California at Irvine. She writes about how laws create hereditary membership groups that seem to be natural. Her focus is on the role law plays in constituting the nation, ethnicity, race, family, kinship, and sexuality. These groups inspire passionate attachments causing systemic violence and inequality, seen especially in crises of war, restrictions of movement among states, inheritance, marriage, and private ownership of land. Stevens also writes about the role of government research in constituting taxonomies of race and ethnicity through the research done on the Human Genome Project.
