Professor Adams teaches and conducts research in the areas of state formation; gender and family; social theory; early modern European politics; and colonialism and empire. She is currently studying large-scale forms of patriarchal politics and the historical sociology of agency relations. We talk with her about her earlier research on The Familial State and her newer work on Contradictions of Agency in Contemporary America.
