Susan Ferguson is Professor of Sociology at Grinnell College, where she has taught for over 25 years. Ferguson regularly teaches Introduction to Sociology, and her critically acclaimed anthology, Mapping the Social Landscape: Readings in Sociology (SAGE, Eighth Edition, 2018) is used in introductory classes around the country. Ferguson also teaches courses on the family, medical sociology, global health, and a seminar on social inequality and identity. Ferguson has published in all of these areas, including the research collection, Breast Cancer: Society Shapes an Epidemic (with co-editor Anne Kasper, Palgrave, 2000), Shifting the Center: Understanding Contemporary Families (Sage, 2019), and Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Social Class: Dimensions of Inequality and Identity (Sage, 2016). In addition, Ferguson is the General Editor for “Contemporary Family Perspectives,” a series of research monographs on the family (Sage Publications). During fall 2016, Ferguson taught three courses on the inaugural Colorado State University Semester at Sea voyage, including the Sociology of Gender, Introduction to Sociology, and Global Studies.
