- Lecturer in Sociology
Office: Stevenson Hall 2084-H
Areas of Expertise:
Comparative Historical, Sociology of Knowledge, Methods
I have wide-ranging interests. Prior to my Ph.D. in Sociology, I studied molecular biology (M.A. plus two years). As Professor of sociology, each of my books (and many of my chapters and articles) examines a different area of expertise. In 2000, I received the Charles Horton Cooley Award for Distinguished Contributions to Sociology. As Professor Emeritus, I've written six novels (none published yet, but I'm hoping that changes this year).
