In July 2019, Dr. Redden joined the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition as their 2019-2020 Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Fellow. As part of the fellowship she will be undertaking research on the utilization of prisoners as call center labour in the United States.
