Kimberly B. Rogers
Associate Professor of Sociology at Dartmouth College.
As a sociological social psychologist, I'm interested in understanding how inequalities are produced, maintained, and resisted through behavior and emotion dynamics in social interactions. My published work evaluates the degree of consensus in identity sentiments and impression formation processes within and between cultures, examines behavioral and emotional responses to stereotyped groups and unfair reward distributions, and reveals the implications of micro-social processes for status and power hierarchies, occupational inequality, victimization, and mental health outcomes.
