Rachel Sherman
Associate Professor, The New School

Rachel Sherman is associate professor of sociology at The New School. She is broadly interested in how and why unequal social relations are reproduced, legitimated, and contested, and in how these processes are embedded in cultural vocabularies of identity, interaction, and entitlement. Empirically, she uses ethnography and in-depth interviewing to investigate service work, consumption, and increasing economic inequality in the contemporary U.S. context.


Project Title: Common Sense About the Common Good: Rethinking Entitlement in America
