James M. Jasper
Since 2007 I have taught sociology at
Graduate Center of the City
University of New York. A long time ago,
I studied economics at Harvard and
sociology at Berkeley, and I've also
taught at Berkeley, Princeton, Columbia,
the New School, and NYU. For fun I do
things like edit the
Oxford Studies in
Culture and Politics and sit on the prize
committee of the
PROSE awards.
