Anne Rawls: Ethnomethodology, Workplace Studies, Race Relations

Speaker Bio

Waverly Duck is an urban sociologist and Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of No Way Out: Precarious Living in the Shadow of Poverty and Drug Dealing (University of Chicago Press, 2015), which was a finalist for the Society for the Study of Social Problem 2016 C. Wright Mills Book Award. His current research involves several projects focusing on gentrification, displacement, and food apartheid. Like his earlier work, his most recent research investigates the challenges faced by socially marginal groups. However, it is more directly concerned with how residents of marginalized communities identify problems and what they think are viable solutions.

Anne Rawls’ teaching and research interests focus on social theory Ethnomethodology, communication, information and explore issues related to the organization of modern democratic publics and their relationship to situated practices of communication and work. These issues include the social character of information, the presentation of self, the development of a modern situated character, and studies of the situated character of reason, order and intelligibility. Research interests include focused studies of situated practice and exploration of the increasing importance of Interaction Orders of Race in modern society. A major research focus has been the delineation of an emergent interactional "social contract" and its resistance to inequalities that result from institutional arrangements and individual interests.
