In 2010, she was the inaugural recipient of the University of Connecticut College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Faculty Achievement Award for Excellence in Teaching.


Professor Price-Glynn’s research interests center on gender, labor and carework. She is co-editor of the volume, From Crisis to Catastrophe: Care, COVID and Pathways to Change (Rutgers University Press May 2023), with Mignon Duffy (University of Massachusetts Lowell) and Amy Armenia (Rollins College). She is co-editor of the book series, Carework in a Changing Worldwith Mignon Duffy and Amy Armenia (with Rutgers University Press). Her current study (under contract with Rutgers University Press) explores the direct and indirect care of parenting groups that demonstrate both barriers and solutions to more equitable and transformative care practices.

Her past research addresses diverse organizational settings including strip clubs, nursing homes, and home health care. Her book, Strip Club: Gender, Power, and Sex Work (NYU Press 2010), examined the processes through which men and women wield, negotiate, and contest power in a gendered organization. She has published with Gender & Society, Sociology of Health & Illness; Research in the Sociology of Health Care; and Work, Employment & Society as well as other journals and in the edited volume, Caring on the Clock (Rutgers University Press 2015).


Professor Price-Glynn is an active member and past co-chair of the Carework Network, an international organization of researchers, policymakers and advocates involved in various domains of care work:  In 2020, the Carework Network launched a virtual hub, http://careworknetworkresponds, that examines transformational responses to COVID-19, highlighting what we know and what we are learning about the social organization of care.

She co-chairs The Wood/Raith Living Trust (2018-present) with Professor Vicki Magley (Psychology, UCONN). The Wood/Raith Living Trust is named for Audrey Wood (UCONN graduate, class of 1947) and Edeltraut Raith. Wood and Raith generously gifted the University of Connecticut funds for the study of gender identity. Over the past five years, we have awarded 61 UCONN Summer Research Fellowships of $4000 each to graduate students across the university,
