Hi everyone! I'm Gwen Sharp, one of Scientopia's guest bloggers for the next two weeks. I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializing in rural sociology and global agriculture. Now I co-edit and write for Sociological Images in addition to my actual paying job as an assistant professor at Nevada State College, where I teach courses on gender, race and ethnicity, sexuality, and pop culture. Over the next two weeks I'll be contributing a few posts using the sociological perspective to analyze U.S. cultural message, particularly in pop culture and marketing materials.
I look forward to the next couple of weeks, and thanks for reading!
