Work and Labor Movements, Comparative Political Economy, and the Sociology of Education
My research and teaching interests include labor and labor movements, the sociology of work, globalization, and social stratification. In my previously published works I have explored a variety of work- and labor-related issues, including the relationship between teacher unionization and high school achievement and the effect of globalization and labor market transformation on union density in U.S. metropolitan areas. In my dissertation, I will explore the relationship between unionization and environmentalism in a comparative perspective.
