Dr. Sharon Yam's monograph Inconvenient Strangers: Transnational Subjects and the Politics of Citizenship (Ohio State University Press, Intersectional Rhetorics Series) draws attention to how intersecting networks of power—particularly race and ethnicity, gender, and social class—marginalize transnational subjects who find themselves outside a dominant citizenship that privileges familiarity and socioeconomic and racial superiority. This book was shortlisted for the 2019 Rhetoric Society of America Book Award. 
 
Her current research and teaching focus on the framework of reproductive justice. Her most recent project adopts the reproductive justice framework to examine how doulas, particularly those who work with marginalized communities, conceptualize and enact advocacy.
