Kathleen Gerson

Collegiate Professor of Arts and Science;Professor of Sociology
Ph.D. 1981 (sociology), M.A. (sociology), California (Berkeley); B.A. (magna cum laude) 1969 (sociology), Stanford.
Areas of Research/Interest:
Gender, Family, Families and Work, Work and Occupations, Social Inequality, The Life Course and Human Development, Social and Individual Change Processes, Qualitative Research Methods and Multi-Method Approaches, Social Policy and Social Change
Research Description:
My research agenda contains several interrelated projects exploring the social transformation of gender, work, and family life in post-industrial societies as well as ways to study these macro and micro processes. These include: (1) a study of “work and care in the new economy” that investigates how today’s women and men are navigating the new conflicts between earning a living and caring for others through in-depth interviews with a broad cross-section of women and men residing in places, such as Silicon Valley and New York City, that represent the cutting edge of economic and occupational change; (2) an NSF-funded study (with Jerry A. Jacobs) that unpacks the complex views Americans hold about the employment of married and single mothers and fathers; and (3) a book on in-depth interviewing (with Sarah A. Damaske) that provides an introduction to the theory and practice of qualitative interviewing.
