Victor Romero’s research emphasizes the law's impact on marginalized groups. He is especially interested in borders and boundaries—both legal and cultural—and how these function. He has written on immigration policy and individual rights and analyzed Supreme Court and other federal court opinions through the lens of post-Brown v. Board of Education notions of equality and discrimination. His inquiries also intersect other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, including history, social psychology, critical race theory, cultural studies, Christianity, and criminal justice.
