In addition to being co-creator and co-editor of The Sociological Cinema, I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology/Anthropology at Ohio Wesleyan University. At Ohio Wesleyan, I teach Social Inequality, Economy and Society, Race and Ethnicity, Social Movements, and Social Problems in The Wire.
My research areas include social inequality, economic sociology, social movements, race/ethnicity, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. My dissertation, entitled “Constructing Private Social Responsibility Standards: A Social Movement’s Struggle to Regulate Global Capitalism,” focused on movements promoting social and environmental responsibility (or, sustainability) within business practices. I have also published on corporate social responsibility, stratification across race and class, civic engagement, and even Jack Kerouac’s On the Road.
In what limited free time academia affords, I like to hike, brew my own beer, cook, and see live music as much as possible.
