Sociology of Work and Gender

Nov 2016

I don't know how Teresa Sharpe doesn't have a silver nugget yet-- she has a cult following within the Sociology department. She is a thoughtful teacher who clearly takes undergraduate teaching very seriously. Her lectures are engaging and all of the readings are meaningful-- Sharpe assigns no busywork, and usually the final papers are opportunities to explore something you're really interested in. Usually her classes are lecture + powerpoint style, but she has a knack for making discussions happen in classes of 60-80 people. If you can take her for Sociology of Work and Gender-- DO IT! She will revolutionize how you think about work, so if you ever plan to have a job (regardless of your own gender)-- take it!)
