In addition to being co-creator and co-editor of The Sociological Cinema, I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at Ohio Wesleyan University, and the Co-Director of the Social Justice major. My teaching and research areas include social inequality, social movements, race/ethnicity, economic sociology, globalization, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
Along with co-author George Ritzer, I am author of two books: Globalization: A Basic Text (2015) and Globalization: The Essentials (forthcoming 2018). I have also also published on corporate social responsibility, stratification across race and class, service learning, and even Jack Kerouac’s On the Road.
My new research focuses on first-generation college graduates and how class experiences shape social justice work. At OWU, I have won the Welch Meritorious Teaching Award (2018), Presidential Award for Racial and Cultural Diversity (2017), and Bishop Francis Emner Kearns Faculty of the Year Award (2016).
In what limited free time academia affords, I like to hike, brew my own beer, cook, and see live music as much as possible.
