Jessica Ann Tueller

Jessica Tueller's teaching and research interests include international human rights law, feminist and queer legal theory, and Latin American legal traditions. Her work furthers intersectional and coalitional approaches to gender and human rights in the Americas and beyond, with implications for government and civil society's treatment of gender-based violence, legal recognition, sexual and reproductive health, and more.

Tueller's writing has appeared in The Yale Law Journal, the Indiana International & Comparative Law Review, and the edited volume Ciencias y pandemia. Una epistemología para los derechos humanos, among other publications.

Tueller is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Public Policy at Wesleyan University and a Clinical Supervisor at the University Network for Human Rights. Prior to joining Wesleyan and the University Network, she completed a Robina Fellowship at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, where she worked across the Rapporteurship on the Rights of LGBTI Persons and the Rapporteurship on the Rights of Women.

Tueller earned her J.D. from Yale Law School, where she served as a Student Director of the Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic, a Student Director of the Schell Center for International Human Rights, and a Director of the Lowenstein Human Rights Project. She graduated summa cum laude with an A.B. in History and Literature from Harvard College, where she specialized in Latin America and pursued the secondary field Ethnicity, Migration, Rights.
