Department Chair: Janice Irvine

We are a generalist sociology department with a wide variety of research interests. Recent books and articles by faculty members have addressed such diverse issues as the creation of global capitalist markets, comparative adolescent sexuality, Viagra, democratization, the revival of the labor movement, workplace discrimination, grammars of death, white collar criminal conspiracies, comparative family policy, comparative racial inequality, the socialization of Chinese adopted children, Latin American social movements, women's workforce and men’s household labor participation, and many other topics. The department is at once committed to basic research and a leader in the project of public sociology.
