Personal Information

Degree:

Ph.D., University of Michigan, 1974

Specialization:

American Labor, Urban and Gender History

Research Interests:

My research focuses on labor, work, and social structure. In a variety of projects I have examined how race, gender, and ethnicity interact at the workplace or in the city to structure mass organization and people's ability to make change or control their lives. Currently I am working on a history of ethnic and race relations in Chicago in the twentieth century.
