Ph.D. in Sociology, 2001. Southern Illinois University. I taught at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln for two years before coming to Fresno State in 2002.
Areas of Specialty
I currently teach courses such as social movements, social change, gender, race, and critical thinking about society. I have published on the topic of "diversity and learning outcomes," and I am currently analyzing variations in learning outcomes in traditional and online classes. I am also developing content for the introduction to sociology market.
My main research areas are social movements and culture. My 2008 book, Cultural Movements and Collective Memory: Christopher Columbus and the Rewriting of the National Origin Myth examines the patriotic, religious, ethnic, and anti-colonial movements that have successfully mobilized to shape public commemoration of Columbus Day.
I am participating with colleagues and students in research projects on self efficacy, sexual abstinence movements, and homelessness.
I have also published research on cultural processes within environmental movements.
My hobbies include bicycling, downhill skiing, and cooking.
