Jamie O'Quinn, PhD
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY, SAN BERNARDINO
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at CSU San Bernardino. My research and teaching interests include sexualities; race, gender, and class; children and youth; marriage and the family; and qualitative research methods. As a Faculty-in-Residence at CSUSB, I also serve as a resource and mentor for students living on campus.
I am a feminist scholar-activist and my research examines how sexual inequalities are reproduced through social institutions. After graduating with a BA in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Cruz, I worked in the nonprofit sector before earning my MA in Sexuality Studies from San Francisco State University. In 2022, I earned my PhD in Sociology from The University of Texas at Austin, where I was manager of the Urban Ethnography Lab, a Graduate Affiliate of the Rapoprt Center for Human Rights and Justice, and completed a doctoral portfolio in Women's and Gender Studies.
My research has won awards from the American Sociological Association, The Society for the Study of Social Problems, and the University of Texas' Center for Women and Gender Studies.
