Meet Emily K. Carian, Assistant Teaching Professor, Sociology
- September 19, 2022
- Research expertise: gender inequality, masculinity, male supremacism
Emily Carian, sociology assistant teaching professor, studies gender inequality and why it persists, despite an increasing number of men who identify as feminists. Her work focuses primarily on masculinity and male supremacism and cultural beliefs about gender. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, she studies mechanisms that sustain gender inequality across a variety of contexts and populations. She’s also cofounder and chair of the board of the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism.
As a new member of the UCI faculty, Carian will be teaching undergraduate courses on research methods, statistics, social psychology, and the sociology of gender. She has a bachelor's in sociology from Dartmouth College, a master's in urban education policy and administration from Loyola Marymount University, and master's and doctorate in sociology from Stanford University.
