We welcome Assistant Professor Joanna Pepin to the St. George Department of Sociology. Professor Pepin received her PhD from the University of Maryland in 2018 and joins us most recently from SUNY Buffalo, where she was Assistant Professor. Her current research addresses two interrelated topics within the sociology of family: 1) the distribution of labour and resources within families, and 2) gender inequality within families and differential outcomes among women across time and place. In addition to the sociology of family, Professor Pepin’s work falls within our departmental research areas of gender, health and mental health, and the sociology of life course and aging.
Professor Pepin has published in the American Sociological Review, the Journal of Marriage, and Family and Demography. Professor Pepin is committed to public sociology; her research has been covered by the New York Times, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and TIME magazine.
