Carolyn Liebler is a new assistant professor in Sociology. She was left out of our announcement of new tenure track faculty in error.
Ph.D. 2001, Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Dissertation: "Fringes of American Indian Identity."
Professor Liebler's work focuses on race and ethnicity, sociology of the family and life course, social demography, social stratification, indigenous peoples, and social support. Several of her ongoing research projects address aspects of the complex translation from racial identities of individuals to race statistics describing a society, a process which is complicated by changes in identities and changes in questionnaire wording.
