Audrey Devine Eller

I am a cultural sociologist with interests in education and criminology. My research focus is on teenagers' transitions in and out of educational and carceral systems. I study how daily interactions reproduce or disrupt inequalities. Currently, I'm writing about how high school students make post-secondary decisions  (such as where and whether to go to college). This research is based on more than six years of NSF-funded qualitative research in New Jersey high schools. In another project using quantitative content analysis of "big data," I examine the social construction of the bully in national media.

I am an assistant professor of sociology at College of St. Scholastica. Before that, I was visiting assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at Grinnell College. I received my Ph.D. in 2012 from the Department of Sociology at Rutgers University, with a graduate certificate in Women's and Gender Studies, and my BA in philosophy and sociology from Seattle University.

I teach sociology of education, culture, self & society, school-to-prison pipeline (visit our blog!), sociological theory, qualitative & quantitative methods, and introduction to sociology.
