Crystal A. Jackson, Ph.D.

Department of Sociology

I study gender & sexuality, political sociology, deviance, and inequalities.

I am starting a new position as an assistant professor with the Department of Sociology at the John Jay College in New York City this fall!

My dissertation research explored the meaning of labor rights for “non-traditional” workers often considered un-organizable, like sex workers. I also co-authored The State of Sex, an ethnographic study of the political economy of Nevada‚Äôs brothel industry.
