Personal Information

First name: 
Danielle
Last name:

Brief Bio: 

I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Occidental College, a private, liberal arts college in Los Angeles, California.

My research and teaching interests, broadly conceived, are concerned with fundamental questions about justice and inequality in our society.

Throughout my teaching, I have engaged digital technologies to embrace new forms of pedagogy and scholarship to enhance students’ learning and educational experiences and to place their work front and center as “public sociology.” In fall 2011, my students and I launched I Heart Sociology as a platform for them to engage, discuss, and communicate their sociological thinking as they progress through each semester.
