Ph.D., North Carolina State University
Sex and Gender, Families, Class Inequality
Jessica Holden Sherwood received her M.S. and Ph.D. (2004) in Sociology from North Carolina State University, and a B.A. from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. She works as executive officer of Sociologists for Women in Society (www.socwomen.org) a professional association of a thousand feminist sociologists. At URI she teaches SOC 242 Gender and SOC 452 Class and Power, which reflects her interest in the "matrix of privilege." Her dissertation analyzed interviews with country club members, as illustrative of people whose privilege allows them to reproduce inequalities. Her book is forthcoming from Lexington Press.
Anthropology Honor Society
URI Anthropology students have been chartered as the Alpha Rhode Island Chapter of Lamda Alpha, the national anthropology honor society. This is a tribute to the hard work of several students and to the academic excellence of our majors and our faculty. Right now, the recruitment of charter members is underway. If you're interested in being one of the first Lamda Alphas, shoot off an email to Ashley Waggoner for all the details.
The URI Anthropology Society is also up and running. Check out their page too.
