Sociology Speaker Series 2020: Caitlyn Collins
Venue: Texas A&M-Corpus Christi
Event Phone: (361) 825-5700
Admission Price: $0
The College of Liberal Arts presents the annual Sociology Speaker Series at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in the University Center, Anchor Ballroom C. The event will feature emerging sociology scholar Dr. Caitlyn Collins, an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. Her research examines the production and consequences of social inequality. Her latest project is a cross-national interview study of 135 working mothers in Sweden, Germany, Italy, and the United States. These four countries offer distinct policy approaches to reconciling work-family conflict. She examines how different ideals of gender, motherhood, and employment are embedded in these policies, and how they shape the daily lives of working mothers in these countries. A book based on this research called “Making Motherhood Work: How Women Manage Careers and Caregiving” was published by Princeton University Press in February 2019. She has also written for The Atlantic and the New York Times. The event is free and open to the public.
There are no events happening in the near future.
