Jenny M. Stuber University of North Florida
Jenny Stuber is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of North Florida. Her research focuses on social class inequality, especially in terms of how people understand and enact it within institutional settings. Her book Inside the College Gates: How Class and Culture Matter in Higher Education (Lexington) explores the reproduction of class inequalities that takes place within higher education’s social and extra-curricular domains. Currently she is working on an ethnographic project in Aspen, Colorado, examining how middle-class residents respond to and resist the growing class inequality within their community. In addition to two textbooks—Exploring Inequality (Oxford University Press) and The Sociology of Education (Routledge), the latter co-authored with Jeanne Ballantine and Floyd Hammock—her research has also appeared in numerous academic journals. A dedicated instructor, her teaching focuses on social inequality, research methods, and annual study abroad trips to Iceland.
