Professor Stevens conducts research on political theories and practices of membership since antiquity.  Her current studies of deportation law enforcement engage European fantasies of conquest in the 12th to 17th centuries as well as the quotidian of government documents revealing contemporary illegalities, including practices resulting in the unlawful deportation of United States citizens from the United States.

Professor Stevens' work has appeared in Political Theory, the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Political Philosophy, Social Text, Third World Quarterly, and many other scholarly venues, as well as in The Nation magazine and the New York Times.

She received her PhD in political science from the University of California at Berkeley in 1993 and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and with highest honors from Smith College.
